The nose is surprisingly rich with notes of waxy honey, leather and zest. Hints of the coast creep in with malty barley sweetness and floral honey. The palate is very woody and peppery with an intense body of seaweed and whirls of smoke with a creamy mouth feel and notes of soft over ripe fruits and plenty of wood. The finish is long and crisp with a tangy spice and gentle smoke.
Smooth and surprisingly toffee creamy
Initially the nose comes across fresh, sweet and with a light sprinkle of smoke - but soon it turns more leather and woody. The taste is slightly fruity ending in a soft smokiness. With a teaspoon of water it changes character and turns more toffee and honeyed sweet and less fruity & smoky. very very nice... especially for the price!
