TITLE: Seared langoustine tails in caramelised bacon / ラングスティーヌ・テールのキャラメリゼベーコン焼き

4年間ex-bourbon hogsheadで熟成した後、second fill PX hogsheadへ移し替え。

A delightful bouquet somewhere between ashy barbequed lemon and smoked treacle next to seared langoustine tails with caramelised bacon, Brazil nuts and pancetta. On the palate a surprisingly sweet start, like duck breast with dark cherries and a port sauce before more ashy and peppery notes appeared, reminding us of beef jerky. After a drop of water, the barbeque briquettes certainly came up to temperature as we took off our woolly jumpers and enjoyed plenty of sweetness from apple-smoked bacon, this time combined with heavily smoked prawns over samphire. Following four years in an ex-bourbon hogshead, we transferred this whisky into a second fill PX hogshead.
