Nose
Highly phenolic. Seaweed and driftwood mingling with hay and a briny/ rock pool aroma. There's some stewed pear. Water brings huge smokiness, edible seaweed and hot sand.
Palate
Sweet yet peppery. Juniper wood, smoked sausage balanced by a distinct sweetness.
Finish
Tingling and salty.
Comment
Young, vibrant and brimful of personality.

Nose
Coal tar soap mixed with hot bitchemun. Slowly becomes grass fires smelt from the seashore,so you get that saltiness in there too.
Palate
Packs quite a punch with a lot of smoke at the front. There is also a sweetness here shrouded in the smoke.
Finish
Short and cleansing.
Comment
A great healing malt for those colder days
