The panel were not expecting peat, but peat abounds! The nose was vividly coastal and alive with iodine, dried herbs, farmyard aspects, medical tinctures and mercurochrome with further subtle notes of crushed nettle and dried herb mix. Water gave us heather ale, liquorice and citrus with an increasing petroleum quality that suggested aged riesling, oysters, lemon juice, wood ash and salted fish. The palate was emphatic with smoked popcorn, peppered mackerel, tar resin, old rope, kippers and a lingering camp fire. Water revealed hessian, dunnage, minerals, beach foam, sand, germoline and a complex waxiness.
