  3. Official tasting note

    NOSE: Early barley sugar then honey, gentle smoke and beach tones, with a hint of mint

    PALATE: Wonderfully sweet with soft and subtle peat centre stage, and later vanilla toffee

    FINISH: As dulcet as expected now with some citrus, more mint, mixed spices and fudge (FHL)
