Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Producer's Tasting Note:
Nose: Full-bodied, delicate. A smoke that evokes fish, wonderfully candied citrus fruit, spices so sweet they verge on sugary, vanilla, fresh walnut, divinely syrupy honey, pipe tobacco, a handful of cocoa beans, a hint of vanilla, peat that plays hide and seek, white flowers and much more.
Palate: Clean, sharp. The palate marks its territory right from the start. It is peaty, liquoricey, oily and herbaceous (cut hay, malted barley). Spices (clove, pepper), heady florals (lily, iris) and exotic fruits (pineapple, mango) gradually manage to penetrate this scene. Marine, it takes us to the sea front to breath in the salty, saline air. The end of the palate reinforces its spicy temperament (star anise, cinnamon).
Finish: Long, calmed. A very rustic finish (dandelion, pasture) that evokes salty meadows. Notes of salicornia accentuate the eminently coastal aspect of its personality. Enthusiasts will enjoy the cod-liver oil flavours and fuel vapours emitted by the engines of fishing boats entering the port and exhaled by the retro-nasal olfaction. The empty glass is Caol Ila-esque.
