Tasting Notes

Nose

Unusual afternoon tea: just-baked scones, candied orange peel and oat cakes with goat's cheese and quince paste. First aid kits.

Palate

A silky, oily texture allows the smoke in this to sneak up slowly. Vanilla panna cotta and Victoria sponge precedes charcoal and antiseptic. Interesting seaweed and dry-hopped beer, alongside fennel-studded saucisson.

Finish

Long. Salty cheese, peppery tingle.

Comment

Sweet and smoky Islay with pleasing development. My kind of complexity.
