Crisp and very maritime, with a combination of seaside bonfires and muddy peat. Sour lemons and bitter oranges provide a counterpoint, with sweet sponge cake batter, floral notes and ground spice giving balance.
Syrupy and sweet to start, with savoury smoke rolling in soon after - ashy and earthy, with touches of barrel char sweetness and charcoal dryness. Floral, spicy and sweet notes develop, with cardamom and clove joined by Sherbet Fountains, candied lemons and a hint of violets.
Long and lingering, with earthiness giving way to tropical fruit and citrusy sap.
Elegant and complex, with an austere minerality balanced by rich smoke and sweet fruit. A dram to take some time over.
