Nose

Mossy peat notes, with a hint of wax crayon. Crumpets with heathery honey, and very milky tea. Elderflower jelly and hints of honeycomb. Fresh dill and tarragon. Later, blueberry jam.

Palate

Light-medium bodied. More of the aniseed herbs and heathery notes, with a little white pepper. Freshly turned turf. Plump, sweet scallops and fatty bacon.

Finish

Medium. On oat cakes, bacon fat, and a slightly bitter herbal note.
