Compact but abundant.

No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Embers and smokey wafts with underlying cooked fruit and Christmas pudding.
Palate: Waft of toastyness leads to cooked fruit,Christmas pudding,dark chocolate and fudge.
Finish: Fruity-smokey balance with lingering smoke.
Comment: Compact but abundant.
Nose: Coastal but right into the sea. Seaweed, tar,iodine... Nothing is missing. The smoke rises up and releases creamy notes of toffee. Apple loft.
Palate: Voluptuously sweet with that briny dryness in the back.Hint of kippers (with a touch of butter).
Comment: Peat and iodine are not all. There's got to be texture and complexity. And this one has got it all.
