Nose
Ethereal and lightly smoky with delicate marine notes,hot sand and glowing charcoal embers. Builds subtly with a blossom-like lift,saffron, grass/delicate vetiver and salty skin.
Palate
Immediate dry smoke,but everything is very precise and pure. Oily/waxy to start though a sandy almost gritty effect grips half way in. There's a seaweed note with water.
Finish
Delicate,gentle,clean and tingling.
Comment
Precise and poised. Happy Birthday Wee Dram.

Nose
Peaty,smoky with a vibrant tickling character. Citrus oil.Bonfire cold ashes. With water,gets briny. Touch of apple skin as well.
Palate
Smooth,very refreshing,like the feel of lemon iced lollipop. Keeps vibrant on the palate. Water tones the smokiness down but brings in sweet malty notes.
Finish
Dry,sooty,a bit thin.
Comment
A very pleasant outdoor dram. Don't look for complexity but just enjoy its fresh fizziness.
