quite drinkable and pleasant dram. Nice balance of medicinal, tangy,
sweet and fruity flavours. Elegant and smoky with a lively minerality. A
light and fresh every day dram!
I thank Caminneci - Wine & Spirit Partner for sample!
The nose starts off with smoke and peaty flavours, gauze bandage and a
nice maritime edge. Behind that, sweet notes of barley sugar and a hint
of citric fruits arrive, followed by a touch of iodine and seaweed in
the back. Quite fresh and appealing.
Surprisingly sweet and fruity start on the palate with barley sugar,
lemons and tangerines. This is accompanied by a significant amount of
peat and subtle smoke. Slightly warming spiciness of pepper, oak,
cloves, allspice and tender nutmeg. The peppery notes increase with
every sip. Nicely mouthfilling.
The finish is long, sweet and warm with malted barley, smoke and
medicinal flavours, followed by a hint of cloves and a briny edge on the
WITH WATER: Water brings more barley sugar and cereal notes
to the fore. Still peaty and tangy with medicinal flavours while the
smokiness is significantly tamed. Intense and warming spices dominate on
the palate with cracked black pepper, cloves, and oak. Still peaty with
a medicinal touch of gauze bandage and iodine. Behind that fruity notes
of lemons and tangerines show up. The finish stays long, warm and
subtle sweet with drying spices dominating on the tail.
