Imagine lighting a peat fire on the beach in glorious sunshine then out of nowhere dark stormy clouds, that indicate an arriving thunderstorm, fill the sky. On the palate the first flash of lightning – powerful and menacing, “like coal dressed with vinegar and Dijon mustard”! With the addition of water, a sweeter side surprises us and we find a mojito cocktail with a dash of Lapsang Souchong tea while the palate has charred berries, dark sweet cherries and macadamia nut oil - most unusual but certainly enjoyable. After four years in an ex-bourbon hogshead we transferred this whisky into a second-fill Mocatel hogshead.
