The Panel found this one a punchy, lean and mineralic dram to begin. Clean gorse bush aromas were joined by ripe peaches, wild flowers, fruity chillies and fresh citrus zests. Water brings rosemary, gooseberry jam and citrus curds. The freshness remains beautifully pronounced. In mouth it arrives with flints, chalk, lime jelly, sandstone and rubbed mint leaf. Then coal dust, juniper wood and hints of ointment. Reduction enhances the gravelly aspects and brings notes of sandalwood, wet rocks, wool and wood grilled mackerel. A lime and herb themed finish rounds things off with aplomb.
