House Style: earthy, very peaty, smoky, salty and robust.

Tasting Notes

Taster: Dave Broom

Nose: Big fragrant (dry) smoke,wet oilskins, linseed oil,hot charcoal. Needs water which shows it to be clean and very open with light oiliness,some brine.

 

Palate: Dry with good extract. Loosens well with a drop of water showing grapefruit,ripe pear,a hint of malt then some yew.

 

Finish: Big phenols massed here leaving you knee-deep in seaweed.

 

Comment: Long,stylish and balanced. Highly recommended.
