The nose brings bonfire smoke and ash with cured bacon and damp soil.
On the palate smoked meats with coal, a sea salt tang. Cracked pepper and a sweet leathery quality.
the whisky comes to an impressive finish as it lingers perfectly with seaweed, heavily peated barley. a touch of lemon rind and vanilla.
