The nose is full, oily and slightly medicinal with plenty of oily peat, tar, salt, and fresh barley. Very subtle oak, which allows the weighty spirit to take centre stage. Late bog myrtle, chocolate and sweet citrus fruit.

The palate is intense, oily and full. Quite coffee’d to begin with earthy peat, salt, iodine, bog myrtle, weighty barley and fruit. Stunning intensity and herbal middle. Long, very salty and juicy with lingering rich, oily fruit, citrus, bog myrtle and astringent peat.

With water the nose become sweeter and displays more barley character. Wonderfully juicy and citric with softer peat but possibly slighty more manure. The palate mirrors the nose, sweeter and barley’ d but also still very salty and astringent notes. Superbly balanced, mouth-filling and juicy with a long, oily, astringent and salty finish.
