Notes

Initially pronounced and saline with brimming notes of gorse, elderflower, gooseberries, dill and toasted fennel seeds. A gentle coastal element like warm beach sand and rock pools. The richness of buttery champagne and hints of dried nuts and a kiss of smoke. Reduction offers jam bubbling in hot copper pots, bacon Frazzles, smoked beers, bitter chocolate and fermenting berry fruits. In the mouth there's a lovely sweet and salty seesaw. Malt extract, nutritional yeasts, light smoke, apple juice, tar extracts and Turkish delight. With water there's a more up-front smokiness along with some lively medical aspects, shilling ales, chalk and salty barley water. Matured for seven years in a bourbon hogshead before being transferred to a Madeira drum that had previously held whisky from distillery number 29.
