Description

Tasting note:

Nose: Fresh, clean and vibrant with notes of lemon oil and sea spray. The smoke is gentle but alluring, reminiscent of wood embers and coal, cooling on a beach fire.
Palate: Rich citrus fruit and salt baked mackerel. Classic Islay peat reek is mixed with a subtle honey suckle sweetness while a background herbal character adds balance.
Finish: Barley sugar lingers as the soot and smoke dissipate leaving the palate clean and ready for another sip.
