The nose has a very Laphroaig-esque, violet scented peat character. Bold, tarry, briny, chlorinated and medicinal. Underneath lays some lovely honey, barley and citrus. More focused and tart (as opposed to the edited) but the lovely sweet barley and oak balances.

The palate kicks off with the almost tart citrus and barley, followed by dusty, medicinal-peat, tar and salt. Intense, vibrant and sooty with developing notes of treacle, liquorice and mocha. Lovely mouth puckering coastal finish with lingering peat dust and faint parma violet notes. Yes, that's bold alright!
