Cask No. 3.285 

Fun on the beach

Islay

Our noses were greeted by that old familiar character of perfumed floral smoke – a beach scene unfolded – some were playing beach cricket with limes and barrel staves instead of bats and balls; someone was squeezing lemons over salted prawns; others just sat idly by sipping margaritas and wearing Jo Malone’s lime, basil and mandarin perfume. The palate had the same DNA – an exquisite balance between sweet and smoky, salty and citric – flavours of herb and pepper-crusted barbecued fish, rocket and feta salad, peppermint, ash, salted liquorice, lemon and lime – a delight for all the senses and a gift to the imagination.peat
