Fresh on the nose with an unobstrusive marine and phenolic character. Tender smoke and peat embers are nicely mixed with malted barley, cereals and delicate citric fruits. Seaweed with a briny and medicinal kick in the back.
Rich, bold and intense on the palate. The medicinal influence continues with peat fire, seaweed and smoked ham, while sweet and creamy tones of barley malt, vanilla and cereals appear almost at the same time. This is supported by lingering lemon notes and a warming spiciness of black pepper, cloves and oak.
The finish is long, dry and warming with lingering peat, cold smoke, and prickling oak with a lovely delicate fruity aftertaste.
