Nose
Fresh, creamy peat with vanilla, heather and some light coffee notes.
Palate
The vanilla drives this with peat smoke and lavender ice cream. Oreo cookies crumbled over whipped cream.
Finish
Smoke again which wisps away into the distance leaving lavender and vanilla behind.
Comment
An easy drinking peaty offering which could lead to an empty bottle pretty quickly.

Nose
Marine. Briny, wet sand, smoked fish. But also soft seashells like cockles cooked in butter. Opening on sweet notes. Lemonade, vanilla. Star anise. Classic Bourbon cask maturation.
Palate
Sweet with a fizzy feel. The same smoke note as on the palate. Salty sensation. Aniseed lozenges. Drying on light spices.
Finish
Short but pleasant.
Comment
An easygoing, straightforward and gently uplifting mariner.
