A fresh and crisp nose which displays plenty of sweet barley and subtle oak and medicinal notes. Hints of tarred rope, iodine, sea salt and pepper follow. A very well balanced nose.

The palate opens with a touch more toffee’d oak but it’s still fresh and salty. Hints of medicinal peat and bog myrtle follow, but it’s the sweet barley that steals the show! Intensely salty and citric finish with lingering menthol, brine and an almost caramelised orange note. But, damn, that’s a salty after-taste!
