CASK No. 42.30


Chimney sweep’s romantic barbeque

Age 9 Years
Date Distilled 29th Mar 2007
Cask Type Refill ex-bourbon hogshead
Region Highland
Outturn 1 of 228 bottles
ABV 60.60%


A dynamic nose, containing sharp fruits (pear, pineapple, sherbet lemons, tinned fruit cocktail), ferns by a rocky waterfall, smoked shellfish and a musket fired up a chimney. The palate had intense, youthful spirit and smoke; also pear ice-lolly, toffee apple, butterscotch, muscovado and bacon Frazzles, then charred logs, wasabi and pickled ginger to finish. The reduced nose conjured up a romantic barbeque with a chimney sweep – lobster, scallops, sweet smoke, snuffed out vanilla candles and hints of Mosel wine. The reduced palate remained voluptuously viscous, bursting with sweet peat smoke, chocolate pralines and black-jack chews; young and feisty, but totally enjoyable.
