CASK No. 10.156

Oily & coastal

Sherbet lemons on a sailboat

Age 10 Years
Date Distilled 3rd October 2007
Cask Type Refill Ex-Bourbon Hogshead
Region Islay
Outturn 1 of 261 bottles
ABV 61.3%


The nose is freshly maritime – seashells, beach pebbles, sea-chests and canvas sails – hints of honey and putty, sherbet lemons and lemon meringue pie. The palate has salt, leather, embers and ash with herbal notes – gin-flavoured with feverfew and sage, coltsfoot rock and dill on gravadlax. The reduced nose encounters bleached driftwood, marram grass, gorse, hessian, lanolin, salted peanuts and quince jam – a complex combination that frequently returns to the machair. The palate grows sweeter – apricot jam on buttered toast, white wine gums, grappa, pear-drops and sourdough bread, then a warming finish of gob-stoppers, humbugs, liquorice and charred oak.
