Well, well, well! This is a first for me!! A special, single cask release from that ever reliable and ever Mr Consistent, David Baker. When he called me up, I think he was chasing payment, he casually mention that he's finally bit the bullet and has brought out something special.
It's a called "A Wisp Of Smoke" and essentially it is a single cask rendition of his fab peated cask strength malt.
And the taste?
A beautiful nose of balanced creamy oak, malt and spirit. And dare I say, with just, "A Wisp Of Smoke". On the palate: Long, lingering, almost like a rapier down the palate. Classic maltiness, beautiful, gently creamy oak, just the right amount of spirit intensity and there it is again, that "Wisp Of Smoke". And it just lingers tasting of ginger nut biscuits.
Mr B you are a marvel!
