Cask No. 16.37      

Polarizing perceptions

Highland, Southern

We were throwing the ultimate barbeque with sizzling sage sausages, pulled pork, burgers and chicken drumsticks but also fancier like halloumi wrapped bacon bites and baked BBQ tofu toast. There was a lot of seasoning going on as the taste was fiercely hot - wasabi and strong mustard came to mind next to spicy Texas-style barbeque sauce. After a gulp of water ashy and sooty, slightly dirty and oily smoke teased our olfactory system and on the palate cod liver oil, smoked sardines in olive oil and salty liquorice graced our palate – certainly not to everyone’s taste.
