Description

The nose was a beach walk to a bothy (with a freshly pitched roof), where we dried woollen socks and hiking boots by the hearth and enjoyed smoked mackerel and toasted marshmallows. The powerful, intense palate had ships' timbers, tarry ropes, cured meats, rum and raisin fudge, and salted caramel ice cream. The feast continued on the reduced nose – grilled oysters and pineapple from a beach barbecue, with applewood-smoked cheese for afters. The palate had sweet chilli barbecued prawns, porridge with blackcurrant jam, crème brûlée and cough syrup. After 11 years in ex-bourbon wood this was transferred to a first fill American oak PX hogshead.
