Tasting Notes

Nose

Needs time (and water) to open. When it does, there's olive oil, pepper, burned timbers on the beach.

Palate

Lean with a lightly oily feel, then a blast of smoke giving hints of seaweed, smoked fish, underpinned by a honeyed sweetness.

Finish

Dies a little.

Comment

Needs more input from the cask. Still, another great selection for TWS.
