SALT 'N' VINEGAR KELP
From Islay, this 10 year old comes in at 60.8% after maturing in a refill hogshead.
Flavour profile: Peated.
Outturn: 272 bottles.
Panel's tasting note: "Notes of twiglets and marmite-smothered toast greeted the Panel at first nosing. Along with vinegar-soaked fish and chips, salted crab meat, mercurochrome, nettles, elastoplast and burnt caramel. With a little water we also found a rusted shipwreck, pin-sharp lemon juice, lime cordial, dense heathery smoke, silage, smoked tea and burning kelp.
The mouth was pure mezcal with peated olive oil, camphor, liquorice chews and smoked lavender. Water added salted toffee, peanuts, tobasco, bacon lardons, menthol cigarette ash and grilled scallops."
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. Don paired this Islay malt with Dageraad Burnabarian, stating "Lightly must with notes of honey and Grand Marnier and a sparkling effervescence, this beer will serve as a contrast against this beautiful whisky"
