Launched in 2018, Aerstone Land Cask is a single malt from the Ailsa Bay Distillery in the Lowlands. Matured for 10 years, Land Cask is so-called because, unlike its counterpart bottling Sea Cask, this malt is matured in warehouses much further inland. The addition of Highland peat creates a sweet and smoky malt. Bottled at 43%. (Bottle size 750ml)
Nose: Rich and punchy peat with layers of coal tar and damp bonfire smoke - punctuated with vibrant, zesty citrus notes.
Palate: The initial rush of peat and wood smoke is followed by a gentle sweetness. Hints of spice and ripe fruits enveloped in smoke.
Finish: Long lasting smokiness.
