In celebration of the Highland Whisky Festival 2021
Savoury aromas of grilled bacon, pretzels and black pepper-coated peanuts nestled beside an abundance of toasty cereals and coal soot-dusted seaweed. In the mouth an exuberant spice was complemented by charred wood dipped in honey and vanilla icing over burning heather and applewood smoked ham. Oily notes emerged with water before salted liquorice and burning tar moved towards dried herbs and dark treacle on crispy rye bread. A tingly palate now embraced menthol and peppermint with applewood smoked duck, baked orange and lemon skin while on the finish came barley sugar sweets and toasted fruit loaf.
