Notes

A surprisingly elegant and subtle expression of this distillery. Wonderfully floral and heathery to begin. Vase water, lilies, pollens, dehydrated citrus peels, gorse flowers and smoke of burning staves in a garden. The medicine creeps in over time with notes of first aid kits, tar extracts, TCP in cotton and then boiler smoke, doused beach campfires and distant drying kelp. Reduction brings out curious notes that suggest a mojito made with peat bog water. More fresh citrus juices sweetened with barley water, Fisherman's Friends, dried mixed herbs and smoked mussels in herbs and brine. The mouth is initially smoky and dense - like salted porridge. Then rosehip syrup, heather ale, seaweed crackers, soy sauce and mineral salts. Water brings some chalky notes, crushed aspirin, sour plums, cider apples, bonfire embers and Elastoplast. The finish goes on forever, disappearing into the smoke-shrouded event horizon...
