Nose: Coastal peat and gentle smoke on initial entry, with brine, camphor, seaweed, guava juice and some barley on the rather complex nose. Slightly green, with some unripe fruits such as mango and kiwi.
Palate: Sweet, slightly spicy and with a fair bit of mellow peat on initial entry, followed by guava juice, mint lollies, fennel and menthol. Some sea salt and camphor emerge towards the end and are chased by a fair bit of cinnamon.
Finish: Long and lingering on the finish, with the sea salt, peat, camphor, cinnamon and guava juice figuring prominently till the end.
Balance: A very well-balanced and fruity dram which exhibits mellow peat and a warmth brought on by the spices and oak without being imposing."
