Nose
Candied cherries, some leather notes, melted butter, black liquorice and a hint of carbolic soap and softer peat round out the initial nose. Water gives more spice and a touch of fresh apple.
Palate
Very spicy, with white pepper, cloves, some star anise and a touch of creaminess. A wisp of peat pops in at the end, alongside green apple.
Finish
Lengthy, with drying peaty/ malty notes.
Comment
Well put together, with a nice display of spice and peat.

Nose
Damp hedgerows, elderflower cordial, warm wool, a gentle herbal quality, blueberry jam, a touch of peat and wooden travel trunks.
Palate
Woody, peated and earthy notes. Sautéed mushroom, treacle cake with cream, blackberry compote.
Finish
Dries with those peaty notes lingering gently.
Comment
Nicely balanced but with a seriously great nose.
