CANDLE TAKING ITS LAST BREATH
This 17 year old from Islay is 57.2% spent its life in a refill sherry butt
Flavour profile: Oily & coastal
Outturn: 537 bottles
Panel's tasting note: "A fairly robust nose, this one doesn’t hold back; oily smoky mackerels, treacle toffee, sherry soaked sultanas, banana bread, dark-fired tobacco, sticky barbecue ribs and salty pork scratching were just a few of the many descriptors given. Big on the palate –‘this is a butcher’s barbecue’, fresh meat from the local butcher; pork sausages, beef burger, chicken drumsticks all with a tasty homemade marinade. Adding water turns it into a Christmas cake trifle or a boozy crème brulee as both having received a very liberal amount of sherry! In the taste, deep dark chocolate loaf with a sweet strong espresso at the finish."
Drinking tip: "Late last night and the night before"
