CASK No. 42.42


Waiter... there's ash in my coffee!

Age 9 Years
Date Distilled 21st February 2008
Cask Type New Oak Barrique
Region Highland
Outturn 1 of 276 bottles
ABV 61.2%


Like sitting atop a campfire we found ourselves engulfed in plumes of scented wood smoke and airborne ash. A salty twang brought the maritime imagery of fish crates and oyster shells on wet sand, perhaps whilst drinking a mocha coffee. The palate carried a tingly spice and the charcoaled sensation of burnt twigs but with the fruity lift of raspberries and blackcurrants with dark chocolate sauce. The finish took a swing towards drier realms and introduced liquorice and burnt herbs with a lingering reek that became sweeter and very moreish with time. After spending 8 years in an ex-bourbon hogshead this was transferred to a new oak barrique for the remainder of its maturation.
