A couth youth

Cask Type Refill Ex-Bourbon Hogshead
Region Islay
Outturn 1 of 308 bottles
ABV 60.9%


The panel were taken aback by the uncharacteristic complexity for the age. The nose displayed yeasty sourdough, lemon drops, pear drops, grist and smoked grains with paraffin, smoked almonds and a pot of fresh kedgeree! Water gave us anchovies, smoked fish, lobster nets, Rauchbeir, cured ham and herring in brine. On the palate we found a cavalcade of grilled scallops, fresh chives, sheeps wool, lapsang souchong, green apple, soda bread and charcoal pencils. Water brought applewood smoke, salted liquorice, mercurochrome, green peppercorns, coal tar soap and bergamot. A rather exquisite and youthful example of the make.
