Nose: Smouldering, intensely oaky nose with hints of lemon, cracked black pepper and pine cones. Massive wood smoke and coal soot.
Palate: Maritime, oily palate entry with furniture polish, beeswax, hints of sticking plaster and anise, and a rich core of brooding peat. Very peppery and intense. A hint of Mezcal appears.
Finish: Long, slightly rubbery finish. Ginger, apple peel and smoke, hints of pine needle and baking spice.
Overall: An intense whisky - not for the faint of heart.
