Heavily Peated Optic Barley
Fresh Bourbon Barrel/ Rum Finished
Dist: Nov 2011 Btl: Jan 2019
Tasted: Mar 2019
The nose opens with barley and earthy peat and a touch of dried rummy fruit, all set against a background of almond paste. With time the oily spirit character comes through with hints of sour apple, cinnamon, tar, salt and a faint medicinal note.

The palate opens with more of the sweet, rummy dried fruit, barley and earth. Cereal, sweet peat, bruised apple and cinnamon follow, along with some grippy but soft tannins and a touch of coffee/ chickory. Long and peaty finish with violets and herbal dried fruit.

A drop of water brings out more high toned rum notes and an almost column still-like graininess. The apple notes are sweeter and the barley more cereally and slightly rawer. The palate displays more oily spirit character and subtle rum notes. There’s still a good depth of cinnamon spiced sweet dried fruit. More complex finish with sweeter peat, tar, pepper, violets and dark spices.
