Tasting notes
Taster   Lyndsey Gray
Nose: Sitting at a harbour with vinegar soaked fish n’ chips. Cookie dough ice cream, pineapple, lime zest, toasted sesame oil and pecan pralines.
Palate: Pineapple fresh off a charcoal barbeque with a sweet burst of lime juice, watermelon and kiwi. Finishes with last night’s bonfire embers, leather and sea salt flakes overriding the citrus element.
Finish: A sweet charred but distant smoke lengthens the finish.
Comment: An intriguing dram, it keeps you second guessing with every sip.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Full on maritime goings-on here, fishing tackle, crates of fresh fish, grilled shrimp with chilli honey and butter, a squeeze of lemon. There's almost an Oriental noodle dish note to this too, ground peanuts, fish sauce and coconut milk.
Palate: Follows on from the nose, but now the smoke emerges. Beach bonfires and grilling fish. Saltine crackers spread with lime jelly.
Finish: A little ashy, but not overly.
Comment: One for an evening stroll on the beach, preferably with a storm brewing.
