TARRY LAPSANG SOUCHONG
This 13 year old Highlander comes from a 1st fill barrel and is 57.8%.
Flavour profile: Peated.
Outturn: 262 bottles.
Panel's tasting note: "A smouldering peat fire was first noticeable on the nose neat followed by clean engine oil, flamed orange peel and finishing with a cup of tarry lapsang souchong tea. On the palate neat, deep, dark and strong like Latakia tobacco, initially sun-cured and then further cured over aromatic wood and a fragrant herb fire giving it an intense smoky-peppery taste.
Water added, on the nose, Chinese-style five spice pork spareribs and on the palate sweet smoky bacon and roasted treacle toffee bananas. After 12 years in an ex-bourbon barrel, we transferred this whisky directly into a 1st fill Limousin oak barrel for the remainder of its maturation."
