General description

Salty intensity! Sweet and salty nose with hints of pear, lemon, and butterscotch. Very salty and mildly sweet taste with notes of sweet honey and fruit. Adding water will dilute some of the salt on the palate and bring out more of the fruity background. Long, lingering, but incredibly salty finish. I think i've written salty enough! Anyway, its a nice and smooth whisky and if you enjoy the smell of sea air and a briny aftertaste then this whisky is for you. It's smoother and more complex than the 12 year, but not enough to warrant the extra cost for the bottle.

Nose

Butterscotch, pears, salt, malt, lemon

Palate

Salt, honey, fruit,

Finish

lingering salt
