Bourbon Cask 719
Dist: Oct 2013 Btl: Sept 2022
Tasted: May 2022
A crisp, fresh nose that has a feel of old skool Caol Ila about it. White fruit, subtle peat, tar, earth, rock pools. Subtle sweet barley balances the stringent coastal notes.

The palate opens with soft, oily barley and white fruit. The peat is earthier in character with slightly stringent coastal notes of salt, tar and coffee. Very subtle oak input and a touch of pepper on the middle. A little masked but a pleasant, sweet barley finish with pulped white fruit, herbal peat, coffee and tobacco in the after-taste.

Water gives the barley and white fruit a sweeter edge. Subtler peat and hints of lemon now. The palate is similar to the nose, less intense now and maybe a bit less complex but rounded and still quite salty and astringent. Good chewy finish with subtle charred oak notes, smoked meat and earthy peat.
