Tasting Notes

Nose

Parma Violets, sooty, sweet peat and fragrant Islay fruit. Weighty with a subtle coastal note adding a freshening element. Hints of orange rind, liquorice and very subtle but creamy oak.

Palate

Mature and tropical with sweet orange, melon, barley, brine and a distant echo of wonderfully sweet peat. Majestic and elegant with a lightly salted middle. \n

Finish

Long and salty with lingering Parma Violets, barley and coastal dusty fruit. \n

Comment

Absolutely gorgeous and probably quite expensive!
