Nose
Deep and initially very honeyed – manuka and hyacinth with hints of citrus and a profusion of salty, chlorinated notes which puts paid to the honey! With time it becomes strangely flat in the glass.
Palate
Soft, opening with oily caramel and slightly fleshy fruit. The honey builds pleasantly and hints of seaweed, salt and lightly medicinal peat comes through.
Finish
Reasonable length with an oily, salty finish.
Comment
It's an odd one this with most of the character appearing on the palate.

Nose
Dry smoke and fresh sea air, Marmite and smoked sausage. The smokiness like that from a wood burner – clean, but interesting.
Palate
Dry and intense from the start, but still well-balanced. Organic peat, straw, oatcakes, and black pepper. A little charcoal.
Finish
Echoes of the smokiness from the palate are accompanied by notes of the crust of fresh, toasted wholemeal bread, and creamy, smoked cheese.
Comment
A great profile of full-on, but different flavours, neatly balanced. I reckon this would go spectacularly with haggis.
