    Not easy to get your head around this one. I'm still getting new things
    off it, but its definitely worth the effort (unless you don't like
    tobacco). A fascinating dram.
    • Nose
      There's an initial struck match sulphur hit, but it quickly lifts. I
      think it won't feature once the bottle has been open for a couple of
      days. It's a starnge nose. There's mixed peel, dark bitter oranges,
      tannins, a certain mustiness, camp coffee and tobacco. Then there's
      ozone and salt too. Amazingly complex.
    • Taste
      Starts with the bitter orange, then you're chewing tobacco for a while,
      before the wave of salt crashes in. A wonderful experience.
    • Finish
      Mouth-watering, big tobacco, much sweeter oranges, long drying and salty.
