Tasting Notes

Nose

Chunky coffee, malt and orange boiled sweets. Baked fruit, barley and light spice with herbal accented peat, coastal notes. With water it is pleasantly juicy with more orange fruit, barley and vanilla oak. Still quite malty though.\n

Palate

Tannic. Winey with brine and earthy, sweet peat. Woody and a little gritty, coffeed on the middle but the honey and toffee counter. Water sweetens, barley and creamy oak appear.\n

Finish

Good length if a little masked with herbal and spicy notes lingering. Fruitier with water.\n

Comment

A big, malty dram that needs some water to assess.
