Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Salty, floral and minerally, like a mix of seaweed and sea pinks. Fresh white fish then it moves to more prawns with chili and salt. There’s deep earthy bracken and heather.
Palate: Follows the nose with that salty and minerally quality. A gentle peat hit with burnt brown sugar. Tropical fruits, mango and griddled pineapple, lurk underneath.
Finish: All the peat gathers, ushered in by tropical fruit, then dries with gorgeous smoke.
Comment: Reminiscent of eating grilled mango in a fishing harbour. An excellent drop.
Taster   Mark Newton
Nose: Beguiling funkiness, slightly nutty. Dried fruits are on display, apricots, sultanas, nothing heady – its quite fresh and elegant. Silky honey and buttered tablet notes. Captivating...
Palate: Not much of that comes through. Slighlty mealy, peaty quality, burnt toast, everything else is mild – honey, traces of sultana and green tomatoes.
Finish: Short, silky, but uninspired. Everything fades leaving a little fresh fruit.
Comment: Amazing nose, but didn't come through on the palate.
