General description

Rich, balanced & interesting. Good depth with unexpected elements coming through. Very enjoyable.

Nose

Rich coastal peat, whiff of smoke, seal salt, softened by a floral/fruity hint (lavender or blueberries).

Palate

Syrupy sweet, wheat, floral tone, a very gentle earthiness, smoke lingering in the background.

Finish

Medium, light peppercorn warmth. Malty with a hint of fruit. Wonderful sweetness on the lips.
