Nose
Minerally, almost saline, then coffee grinds and bracken and burning heather. Lychee, pomegranate eventually, until roasted beetroot.
Palate
Bitter orange marmalade, candied almond and a touch of barley sugar water. Roast beetroot. A spice prickle and then ends with salt crackers.
Finish
Short and swift with that minerality showing through. Dries on rock salt crystals.
Comment
Gorgeous and breathtaking, that play of the seaside and earthiness, perfect balance.

Nose
Opens like a festive treat. Marzipane, cherry-bakewells and Christmas cake. Rich and so enticing.
Palate
A rich mouthfeel, folds up into layers on the tongue. Spices, a little woody prickle, plump raisins, lashings of golden syrup and porridge. Really well balanced. Wow.
Finish
A touch short, but only serves to make you want more. Nothing too overpowering.
Comment
What a cracking dram! With a fruity, syrupy punch this is could not only be a dessert whisky but one for breakfast too.
