Tasted: Aug 2014
The nose is gristy and earthy with a youthful oiliness. Fishy, coastal peat aromas mingle with hints of honey, lightly toasted toffee and herbal biscuits. I was expecting a little more sweetness from the Sauternes cask but the nose is more focused on the edgy, peated spirit.

The palate opens with large dollops of toffee and dark-ish honey. Hints of earthy-peat and oily, youthful notes follow. Quite herbal on the middle but the Sauternes adds just enough sweetness to stop it being too austere. Very fishy finish with hints of crystallised violets and sweet-ish spices which really take your breath away.
