Tasting Notes

Nose

Earthy and peaty, like freshly turned turf, with light medicinal notes over the top. A little malted milk ball and vanilla syrup, with subtle orchard fruit notes and a little beeswax. Very subtle petrolic note.

Palate

Light-medium bodied. The earthy peat notes hold court, with some smouldering barbecue embers. Hints of apricot and peach preserves, well-cooked ‘eggy bread’, and used coffee grounds.

Finish

Medium-long. Continuing peat and a slightly waxy floral note.

Comment

A skilful show of peat’s different shades.
