Tasting Notes

Nose

Smoky and intense. Good delivery of sweet peat smoke. Balanced, subtle and rounded. A fleshy smoked fish, olive oil, vegetal. Good breadth of flavour. Intriguing. Hint of coconut.

Palate

Very smoky start, then medicinal notes, then macaroon with a floral sweetness underpinning it. Lightly oily texture.

Finish

Long, smoky, peppered mackerel.

Comment

More expressive than the other peated one. Very good.
