An intensely fresh, citric and peaty nose with hints of medicinal peat and iodine. Lovely balance with the barley and subtle dark, tropical fruit, malt and toasty oak appearing along with a touch of treacle and tar. Very complex and very impressive!

The palate has a lovely softness which belies its abv. Dry, husky barley and dry peat to begin with, followed by medicinal peat, subtle tar, treacle and malt with a touch of toasty oak and honey on the middle. Long, citric, dusty and very violety finish with lingering bananary fruit, salt and mocha.

A drop of water emphasises the medicinal notes, toasty oak, barley and brings out a light tea/ cigar leaf note. The palate is softer and drier with less medicinal notes and more duty, earthy peat. Still very salty and citric with a seriously mouth-watering citric finish with a barley and dry peat after-taste. Stunning!
