Nose
Tarred rope, varnish, a Swedish fisherman returning from sea having just fixed his outboard motor. Dying embers of a coastal fire.
Palate
Smoke and seaweed, a hint of bovril, lapsang souchong, liqourice and parma violets.
Finish
Surprise, surprise...smoke. Some vanilla and hints of patchouli.
Comment
A big ploughing workhouse. Not a showjumper prancing about but a direct beast that does a job.

Annabel Meikle

Nose
Soft floral notes of dusty rose and elder, then lemon peel and coconut ice. White balsamic vinegar and a crispness like chenin blanc with rumbling smoke.
Palate
A bunch of fresh herbs with the delicate heat of pickled ginger. A sweetness of madeleine biscuits with grated zest then brine and chalky smoke.
Finish
Silky
Comment
A reflective dram that needs time to unravel.
