Tasting Notes

Distillery: Powerful smouldering peat smokiness on a cleansing, oiled base, with the smell of the sea in the background. Complex lighter notes lie within, among them citrus zest, fresh mint and tropical fruits. Add water, and iodine-rich cleanness combines with smoke, to be altogether appetising.

Vicky: Sweet meat smoke, light, with BBQ smoke drifting on the breeze.

Distillery: Smoothly oily with an exquisitely powerful taste, first sweet and firm, with strong saltiness, then drying and tangy. A rush of simple notes: salt and vinegar on chips wrapped in paper: honey, mints: wax: oil lamps: fresh wood. With water sweet, smoky and salty, with citrus fruit.

Vicky: Initially sweet, with citrus fruits giving way to a citrus smoke.

Distillery: The long, spicy and smoky finish is intensely sweet, then deeply pungent and warming, with a lingering dryness.

Vicky: A lingering fruity coal ash remains.
