Nose: Oily peat smoke on the nose, accompanied by ash, rich chocolatey malt, a waft of lemon zest and seaside harbour seaweed in the background.

Finish: The finish is long lasting with more seaside minerality, peaty bonfire, ash and seaweed. In addition, some dry oak, liquorice and a touch of salinity.oily leather, and pickled lemons.
