Open Mic Trio, Beer and Bite        Member £15/ Guest £18  

New carpet in a sweetie shop Young and spritely       Cask No. 77.40              Our first impressions of the nose were floral, grassy, fresh, bright and perfumed (including lemongrass and hessian) – quickly followed by fruit (pineapple chunks, lemon), sweet vanilla, custard creams, Turkish Delight and rainbow drops. The unreduced palate was hot, spirityand lively, though the ginger nip, tannic wood and green chilli were all reasonably integrated with sherbet lemons, pineapple fizz, juicy fruit salad chews, Turkish Delight and vanilla custard. The reduced nose found wooden pencil cases, new carpets and a confectioneryThepalate was an attractive, complex ensemble of sweetly perfumed fruits, with an interesting dry, slightly bitter, tree barkfinish.

Ivory keys, Sweet, Fruity & Mellow                                     Cask No. 36.103     The initial sweet, fruity and floral array of aromas reminded us of natural rosewater essence, pear drops and ripe bananas. But at the same time there was also the scent of clean wood finally described as opening the lid of a grand mahogany piano and lifting the fallboard after it had been expertly cleaned and tuned. If you have never experienced that, how about ‘sipping a tree’ – a ‘cedar infused’ Campari accompanied by ginger spiced marmalade on toasted rye bread. Diluted; apples in new wooden boxes and crates of limes before we finally relaxed with Viennese apple strudel and a Wiener Melange coffee.

Date distilled: 14 August 2002            Age: 13 years                                     Outturn: 210 bottles

Sweet but dangerous  Peated                                                Cask No. 10.93

The nose took us to a beach bonfire – peat smoke, heather, gorse, salty sea air and moules marinières – but one panellist had his own barbeque in a hospital car-park. With water, we imagined coal-tar, liquorice and teriyaki-glazed ribs, an Islay High Street in winter and Dick Van Dyke’s chimney-sweep cap. The neat palate was enormous – deep smoke, chewy dark toffee, mechanics overalls, a disinfected operating theatre, hints of farmyard and pork and apple sausages roasting on a smoky barbeque. The reduced palate – liquorice and clove confectionery – sweet but dangerous (like Mary Poppins!) – and all enjoyed down-wind of an Islay pagoda.

Date distilled: 1st December 2006      Age: 9 years                           Outturn: 270 bottles
