      Tasting Notes

      Nose

      Subtly peated, running to warm beach sand and citrus with now more evident phenols.


      Palate

      Initially sweet barley and peat, with coal dust and chimney soot all showing through its pelagic style.


      Finish

      All of the above is evident plus more spice, soft chewed leather and late tar(FDL.)
