Tasting Notes

Nose

Lean, green olive/sap with a belch of kiln smoke behind. Water shows immense smokiness: tarry ropes, sea thrift, fishermen's jumpers and a little burst of citrus.

Palate

Direct, dry. More of the kiln than the seashore. Oily.

Finish

Smoky, dry.

Comment

The smokier of the two, but doesn't have the roundness and complexity of the '78.
