Tasting Notes

Nose

Rock pools, wet stone. Quite tight and young with a struck match note. Clean phenolics with good intensity. Sooty with some sweetness behind.

Palate

Medium-bodied. Very pure and fresh. Light oak. Interesting mix of sweetness with spiky peppermint, then smoke. Good balance.

Finish

Fresh.

Comment

A lively smoky little number. One for a walk.
