The panel were thrilled to find a dram alluding so elegantly to its coastal origins with notes of salted caramel, pink marshmallow, buttermint, gorse flower, camphor, vanilla foam and sultana-strewn muesli. A splash of water and we got sea greens, beach pebbles, sandalwood, hessian, barbour jacket and notes of lime jelly and mole sauce. The palate was no less vigorous and vivid. It kicked off with further sultana notes, then herb butter, ripe papaya, lemon balm, white stone fruits, lightly medicinal gauze and a sweet sootiness. Reduced it revealed some wonderfully soft waxiness, yellow flowers, dried seaweed in Ramen, some cooling bonfire ash and a fading finish full of tropical fruit salad and popcorn. After 9 years in a bourbon hogshead this was transferred to 2nd fill medium toast heavy char hogshead.
