Heavily Peated Optic Barley
Fresh Bourbon Barrel
Dist: 2012 Btl: 2017
Tasted: Oct 2017
Gritty and earthy with a lovely combination of sweet, heathery peat and earthy peat. Hints of honey, fresh barley and taught vanillins. The apricot fruit has a sort of almost winey edge and with time it becomes pleasantly crisp and mineral with a touch of salt and lemon.

The palate has a lovely intensity of gritty peat and earth backed by voluptuous honeyed fruit. The alcohol holds that honey sweetness in check allowing barley, white fruit and mineral notes to emerge. Long with lingering earthy peat, wood embers, subtle coffee and stone fruit. Intense and full of elemental character.

Water emphasises the oily spirit character and I swear I can smell a slight botrytis grapey note, a la a Sauternes cask, or that might just be my imagination. It also brings forward the oak and sweet fruit. The peat has become quite wispy. The palate is softer and fruitier. Still quite earthy and like the nose, subtle on the peat. Hints of honeysuckle, camomile appear in the finish now, slong with charred wood and earthy peat.
