Fresh sea spray, smoked seaweed, damp bonfire and bananas
Tangy, citrus notes like pineapple, but charred pineapple on the bbq. There's a salty, meatiness countered by a herbal twist
Long finish, sweet and salty
Staoisha 7, 1st Fill Ecuadorian Rum
Distilled at Bunnahabhain distillery, on the isle of Islay, Staoisha is what they call their peated spirit that is released to the cask market. This 7 year old example has been bottled by independent bottler, Brave New Spirits, as part of their Rebels - The Guerilla Casks range.
Rebels showcases single cask, single malts in interesting cask maturations and finishes. This particular Staoisha release has been exclusively matured for 7 years in a first-fill Ecuadorian Rum barrel.
A very interesting cask combo indeed, peated, salty staoisha spirit paired with sweet rum... and of course, natural colour, non-chill filtered and bottled at cask strength.
