Nose
Phenolic. Creosote, iodine, tar, farm yard. The full range of peated aromas. Not so smoky at first though. Bog myrtle. And a mineral note.
Palate
Sweet with a salty feel. Oyster, smoked fish, then citrussy flavours. Lemon sorbet. Sweet all the way. Barley sugar. With water, more citrus.
Finish
Dry, smoky, mineral.
Comment
A perfect islander. More phenolic than smoky and so well balanced. The ocean in your glass. Bring the oysters!

Nose
This is Aldeburgh beach after a storm, sea washed pebbles, seaweed, salt spray, tarred groynes. Also hot smoked fish and smoke houses.
Palate
Salted caramel but there is a citrus zip to it. Gravalax, smoked herrings, but there is a sweetness too.
Finish
Short and peated.
Comment
A great example of well balanced peat and sweetness. Worth trying outdoors in the rain.
