    TASTING NOTE (LMDW): Color: old gold (beautiful). Nose: exceptional finesse and power. Mirabelle plums, bouquets of peppery roses, quince jelly and linden marry malted barley, a slight hint of peat and chalk, its minerality is at the edge of the skin, Salin and proudly claiming its island character, it then oscillates between heady flowers (honeysuckle), smoked fish and herbs. Palate: firm, powerful. Its notes of heather honey, strong spices (ginger, clove) and moist earth are crying with truth, the middle of the mouth is still in expression, oily, it relies on a haughty bitterness to take a lot of height. Empty barrels, synonymous with pleasures to come, are waiting to be filled in the distillery's courtyard.Avent, she breathes full lungs the pure air of the open sea. Final: long, silky. At first, it is extremely fruity (pineapple, mango), honey and floral (broom, mimosa). Then, the malted barley delicately smoked comes back at full gallop.The air is more lively. Full of tranquility, the retro-olfaction is vanilla, chocolate and spicy (black pepper). While adding tuberose and tar, the empty glass is immense in fidelity.
