    SMWS notes:

    The Panel were startled by a rather elegant aroma of smoked mint tea, herbal infusions, game consommé, bath slats, embrocations, medicine cabinets and hospital corridors. A beautifully elegant salinity with additional notes of sooty chimneys, sweet peat, salt-baked fish, sheep wool and rapeseed oil. With water we found pure seawater, smoke sea salt, mussels pickled in brine, trampled nettles, ceviche in lime juice, chopped shallots and smoked oatmeal. The neat palate gave an initial hit of hot-smoked salmon, cured game meats, farmyard, tractor grease, bicycle inner tubes, smoky bacon, paprika and chilli-infused dark chocolate. Water evolved things towards petrichor, damp ferns, hessian, mutton broth, lanolin, black olive tapenade and mezcal. Matured for seven years in a bourbon barrel before being transferred to a heavily charred ex-Islay whisky hogshead.
