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"
