    • Nose
      Now this is more like it. A great hit of beaches - seaweed and salt with peat fires on the beach. A trace of creosote wafting across on the breeze too.
    • Taste
      Soft and peaty, with a nice smoked fish in the glass. Quite tarry after a few seconds.
    • Finish
      A long finish of smoky peat with no bitterness.
