STEAM TRAIN THROUGH A PHARMACY

This 12 year old Highlander is from a refill barrel and comes in at 58.5%

Flavour profile:  Peated

Outturn:  204 bottles

Panel's tasting note:  "The nose delivered an immediate, unmistakable blast of vanilla smoke – then cigar ash, walnut shells, polished wood pharmacy counters – eventually pine forest freshness. To taste, the smoke had a more tarry character (the taste left after working with bitumen roofing sheets), Buckley’s Mixture and eucalyptus – the balancing sweetness reminded us of aniseed-flavoured Liquorice Allsorts and blackcurrants. The reduced nose had cleaner, more clinical smoke, causing one panellist to recall a journey on the Jacobite steam train (wood, leather, smoke, heather, pine). The palate now flooded our mouths with sweet, succulent easy-drinking joy – restrained hickory smoke and blackcurrant Halls."

Drinking tip:  "To make the last hour of the day (before going to bed) something special"
