Cask No. 10.126    

My cloak’s on fire

Islay

The nose was a cloak of subtle complexity that shrouded a palate with a more dominant demeanour. Salty aromas pictured rock pools and seashells beside sand dunes and faint wafts of peat smoke. A light sweetness was present akin to plums in syrup and sweet and salty popcorn. It was on the palate that the smoke appeared from behind the cloak like a bullfighter sidestepping a charging cloud of peat reek. From within the plumes came salted liquorice and caramel with fennel seeds, cloves and barbequed scallops. The finish retained a sweet and salty attitude with a twist of lemon and herbal liqueur.
