The nose evoked shredded twigs and leaves and well-fired almond croissants enjoyed among the sand dunes. The palate had dried kelp and smoked sea salt, chocolate limes and a background gristy, bran flake cereal note. The reduced nose echoed this with rich tea biscuits and grain sacks, but also heather flowers and aloe vera bath salts. The palate developed dark chocolate with caramel and sea salt, coal dust and ash, herbs flaming on the barbeque and a white pepper finish. We combined selected nine year-old casks from this distillery and then returned the single malt into various casks to develop further. This is one of those casks.
