An unusual departure from this stalwart distillery's house style. Initially full-on fabrics in an airing cupboard, mineral salts, herbal infusions in mysterious broths, mint tea, soft citrus jellied fruits and spearmint chewing gum. After that some limoncello diluted with tonic water and a scatter of pine nuts to add a touch of class. Water revealed freshly baked biscotti, blanc de blanc champagne and further elegant autolytic aspects. Some peppery watercress, damp moss and trampled ferns. The neat palate was full of grassy grappa, soda bread, scone mix, cooling wort, dried cereals and freshly milled oats. A kiss of refreshing gooseberry acidity with chopped tarragon and limestone. Reduction enhanced this light saline quality with notes of aged Parmesan cheese, umami pasta water and mineral oil.
