      Sea-air breeziness, peat, smoke, perished barley wheat, lemon, kippered fish like herring and some fruit sweetness on this slightly unrestrained first sniff. Coastal briny, roasted fish, malty, roasted almonds, hay and candied ginger dispensed on the second whiff. With 3 drops of water added and leave it for 15 minutes; saline, more smokey and peaty now, chimney ashes, roasted pecan, wood spices such as cardamom, star anise, cinnamon, cloves, fennel and some hints of sichuan peppercorns. A smoky and yet spices sensation tingling inside the nose.

      Sweet, leathery and oily on arrival. Very rounded savoury, piquant and voluminous of herbs and meatiness before the saltiness of herring spring out. With water: ripe mango, olive and tamarind sourness; straw, hay, roasted almond, bitters smoke of cigarettes, briny, sweaty and peat. A wee touch of black pepper and clove appears at the background.
    • Finish

      Medium long. Persisting saltiness and peatiness with long lasting ginger’s pungent spicy aroma. Warm oakiness and cool mint sensation lingering for quite a while before fading out with the touches of nuttiness.

    • Nose
      86 86
      Clean and fruity, more on citrus.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Sour and Soapy
    • Finish
      85 85
      Weak finishing, just peat. Nothing much to say.
