Nose
Big BBQ pork notes, chopped green chilli, new leather, dry heather and paprika. A top note of lime.
Palate
Delicate smoke, which is meaty yet sweet, intense yet balanced. This is heavily cask influenced but retains its own core personality of delicate peat and oily natural sweetness.
Finish
Peat, pork, syrup.
Comment
Very sweet, peaty but drinkable.

Nose
Earthy and malty. Wet straw, light smoke close to the ground, like on a foggy, rainy day. In the back, grassy notes and a touch of orange zest. Invigorating.
Palate
Sweet at first then getting fizzy with a salty feel. The feel you have when you walk by the shore. Hint of custard. Appetising.
Finish
Medium long, dry, with a spicy twist.
Comment
Where is the seafood platter? A lovely dram with a perfect balance between the malty flavours and the gentle smoke.
