HAPPY IN THE POTTING SHED
This 10 year old Highlander comes in at 59.9% after maturing in a 2nd fill barrel.
Flavour profile: Spicy & dry.
Outturn: 225 bottles.
Panel's tasting note: "The air was dry and dusty and tickled the nose like white pepper. Old leather gardening gloves sat on a bench beside dried flowers and a bundle of heather. There was a box of potatoes, freshly dug up and still attached to clumps of clean earth.
Sweet notes came from tins of lemon bonbons and chalky fruit sweets with squidgy marshmallows whilst a gentle spice came in the form of ginger and creamed horseradish sauce. Fruity flavours drew from tomato plants and apricots with rye bread before the finish delivered pine cones and dried mushrooms dusted with cocoa powder and sitting on a bed of wood chips."
Part of the SMWS August of 2019 'Hauf & Hauf' theme, this bottling was paired with a beer that was selected by Calgary SMWS member and beer writer Don Tse. HAPPY IN THE POTTING SHED was paired with Steam Whistle Pilsner. As per Don: "Crisp, effervescent and lightly hopped, pilsner will contrast this dram and refresh the palate for another sip."
