Smoky. Peaty. Sweet vanilla notes. Hint of moss and wet leaves. Liquorice and clove give it a medicinal touch which teases the nostrils.
Palate
Fresh and round. Smoky and malty. Toasted bread over a bonfire. Sweet vanilla again.
Finish
Medium length,minty with a pleasant brazil nut aftertaste.
Comment
A pleasant dram. No complexity of any sort,but a good outdoor companion for a barbecue or a walk in the fields.
