    Nose: Coastal, aromatic nose with hints of lime peel and fresh herbs. Tangy notes of citrus, allspice, soft peat smoke and tar.Palate: Tarry old ropes and beeswax. Hints of lemon curd, honey, allspice and cardamom. Rich oak and a thick plume of oily wood smoke.Finish: Long finish - very complex with hints of salted butter and herbs on the tail.Overall: Beautifully complex and a great example from Port Ellen...
