STARRY, STARRY NIGHT

This 19 year old from Islay comes in at 54.2% and is from a refill sherry butt

Flavour profile:  Oily & coastal

Outturn:  538 bottles

Panel's tasting note:  "Childhood memories of airfix paint, Scalextric tires, linseed oil and caramel bars. Smoked duck breast and grilled oyster on the barbecue. To taste the panel found red licorice laces and burnt marshmallows. A big puff of peat, tarry rope and chorizo on the tongue. With water, we found it became fresher with aromas of menthol and English lavender. A crisp mineralic quality smoothed out the peat. It reminded one of ‘sooking spoots’ (sucking razor clams) from the shell. A clean and spritely finish of black pepper and sparkling water make this a perfect nightcap."

Drinking tip:  "For a romantic liaison by the seaside"
