Nose
Scallop shells, rock pools, brine. Some coal notes in time.
Palate
Initially zesty fruit notes and milk chocolate, becoming very smoky, with traces of tar.
Finish
Lingering smoke with the taste of chimneys.
Comment
A bit of an old sea beast!

Nose
Barbeques on a beach, seared scallops, very marine. Coal tar soap comes through as well, warmed tarmac.
Palate
Tropical fruits, oranges and a hint of whipping cream but then the peat smoke rises filling the mouth.
Finish
Drying and peaty.
Comment
Great balance on the palate.
