MARMALADE ROCK POOLS
From Islay, this 10 year old was matured in a refill hogshead and comes in at 60.8%.
Flavour profile: Oily & coastal.
Outturn: 242 bottles.
Panel's tasting note: "The nose conjured a scene of coastal calm as the setting sun highlighted salty rock pools beneath the mineralic contours of chalky cliffs. The air carried a faint whiff of perfumed smoke, perhaps from burning heather and gorse, which mixed with the clean and earthy smell of a dunnage warehouse floor.
The palate surprised with a fiery kick like an unexpected chili pepper lurking in honey. Sweetness ensued as the biscuity base of cheesecake mingled with thick cut marmalade to balance with a fruity tang that also encapsulated physalis and kumquat. The finish delivered a wonderfully oily texture and left a lasting taste of fine Cognac and spiced pickle."
