Nose: Sweet and jammy. There are aromas of parma violets, boiled sweets and buttery tablet with a note of fennel. Sticky ginger cake, strawberry jam with a tang of grapefruit and lemon sherbet. There is a familiar coastal saltiness on the nose.
Palate: The briny, maritime characteristics follow through with light peat smoke. Sticky toffee pudding, caramelised sugar and a spicey, herbal hint of black cracked pepper and tea leaves.
Finish: The finish is nutty, smooth and slightly woody. Notes of walnuts and pecans with subtle peat smoke to the end.
