Tasting notes
Taster   Sara Smith
Nose: Dry smoke and fresh sea air, Marmite and smoked sausage. The smokiness like that from a wood burner – clean, but interesting.
Palate: Dry and intense from the start, but still well-balanced. Organic peat, straw, oatcakes, and black pepper. A little charcoal.
Finish: Echoes of the smokiness from the palate are accompanied by notes of the crust of fresh, toasted wholemeal bread, and creamy, smoked cheese.
Comment: A great profile of full-on, but different flavours, neatly balanced. I reckon this would go spectacularly with haggis.
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Deep and initially very honeyed – manuka and hyacinth with hints of citrus and a profusion of salty, chlorinated notes which puts paid to the honey! With time it becomes strangely flat in the glass.
Palate: Soft, opening with oily caramel and slightly fleshy fruit. The honey builds pleasantly and hints of seaweed, salt and lightly medicinal peat comes through.
Finish: Reasonable length with an oily, salty finish.
Comment: It’s an odd one this with most of the character appearing on the palate.
