Nose
Fresh sea smells. A walk in the dunes.
Palate
Fresh, creamy. Reminded me of a mustardy hollandaise sauce (perhaps served with samphire).
Finish
Fruity, mustardy, dry.
Comment
Not one of the peaty vintages, and would have benefited from some other element to lift the creaminess.

Nose
A very fruity nose: tangerine peel, marmalade, tinned peaches, slightly waxy.
Palate
Best drunk neat. A gentle, quite sweet palate. There's a little woodiness, but the main effect is of ripe sweet fruit.
Finish
A hint of smoke.
Comment
Gentle and well-balanced.
