Nose
Fragrant. Herbal. Lemon balm. Lime and ginger herbal tea. Nicely prickly. A marine scent,like walking through a dune on a warm day. Touch of creosote.
Palate
Oily. Sweet at start,then a spice burst in a whiff of smoke. Minty,Refreshing. Hint of bog myrtle.
Finish
Dry, tickling, spicy. Garden mint.
Comment
Awake up dram. Fresh,vibrant,wide open on the sea horizon. Bring bacon and eggs.

Lightly smoked kippers with a dash of lemon juice.
Palate
Smoke and spice,but with an acerbic wet wood note and olive oil.
Finish
Savoury,spicy and reasonably long.
Comment
Unusual take on a peaty theme, but it works well.
