Cask No. 93.163   

A knock-out combination


An earthy, smoky sweetness reminded us of extra virgin olive oil, heather tea, tobacco and an aged rhum Agricole with that scent of smoked herbs and smoked honey. The taste was a magic combination - the right cross a peaty spirit and the left hook a funky sweet rum.  A Frank Bruno knock out, “know what I mean?” Water added pan-seared scallops in butter and smoked coconut on the nose while on the palate dry cured serrano ham, flambeed bananas and in the finish, a rum extra matured in a peaty cask. After 15 years in an ex-bourbon hogshead, we transferred this whisky into a re-fill bourbon barrel that previously matured rum from Guyana.
