Nose: A mix of pear-heavy Calvados, olive oil, stem ginger and a hint of fresh oysters with a squeeze of lemon juice. Some vanilla sweetness, a tinge of beeswax, lovely warm slabs of peat and butterscotch.
Palate: Big notes of tangy peat, salinity, butter on samphire, lapsang souchong, buttermilk, vanilla, ginger, nutmeg and TCP. Fascinating.
Finish: Wood ash, linseed oil, TCP again, sticking plasters, malt and smoked. A touch of anchovy and cut hay.
