Description

Initially – smoked Tabasco sauce and burnt salted caramel but with time we had cold smoked salmon on a piece of heavily toasted bread with a sweet and spicy horseradish dressing. On the palate – a barrage of dry smoke, hot and peppery but at the same time with the sweetness of a honey glaze – what an experience! Diluted; we used oily sweet and heavily smoked orange peel to make an Old Fashioned cocktail with a difference and on the palate now, succulent sweet peat smoke like dark fruits having been soaked in peaty whisky for months. After six years in an ex-bourbon hogshead we transferred this whisky into a first-fill shaved, toasted and re-charred barrique.
