Nose
Scented with light violet. Distinctly briny; wet rope, dried salt on canvas, wet green fern and the light leather. With water, you are on the shoreline next to the embers of a bonfire.
Palate
The complexity continues, balancing strawberry with cracked pepper, bay leaf, purple smoke, edible seaweed.
Finish
Salted chocolate.
Comment
A drop in strength from the Special Release expressions but a massive upping in complexity. An instant classic.

Nose
At first an almost tangy rhubarb, apple and blackberry crumble, buttery, then first aid kits: bandages and plasters. A little boot dubbin note and soft gentle peat emerges.
Palate
Soft silky and mouthcoating, hints of salted caramel ice cream, tablet and runny honey. There is a peppery note lurking together with exotic spices.
Finish
Fruity, tangy and spicy.
Comment
Stunning, complex and loaded with layers of flavour and aroma. Would be fun to pair with some sushi.
