Nose
Smoky and marine: oyster liquor and smoke from a tarry BBQ with rosemary thrown onto the embers. Clean, dry and quite punchy, but at the same time controlled. Carbolic and iodine emerges with water.
Palate
Dry (oatcake and peat dust) then loosens into the briny seafood note of seaweed. Very clean and bright.
Finish
Light and oily.
Comment
Balanced yet assertive.

Nose
Peaty. Creosote, smoke, soot. Peatreek infused.On time, a citrus note. But not much more. It is very pale in colour. Lemon drop. A touch of water melon.
Palate
A smoke and soot invasion. Charcoal. Barbecued sardines.
Finish
Dry, smoky. Slightly numbing.
Comment
Could be the perfect wake up for campers drenched to the skin on a Summer's day on the west coast of Scotland!
