Nose
Smoky. Phenolic. Creosote. Rain on a bonfire by the shore. Farm yard. A citrussy note. Grapefruit juice.
Palate
Sweet and gently flowing. Wild silk. The smoky and peaty flavours unwind elegantly, mingling with lemon pulp and cereals.
Finish
Sherbety, tingling and lively.
Comment
An enticing islander. A dash of water gives a velvety feel but in the same time, enhances the sootiness, hence a dusty feel on the tongue.

Nose
Peaty at first. Warmed tyres. A touch of wet dog by the sea. Sharp citrus fruits and some sweetness.
Palate
That sweet smoke revealed a sharp spiced edge. Lemon drops and a chilli tang dry the mouth.
Finish
Fizzy and reviving.
Comment
A great restorative dram that gives you what it says it will.
