A pure and classical example of this legendary make. Immediate notes of hot coals, damp beach bonfire, heather ale, lemon scented yeast, old leather shoes and light, medicinal peat. Further aromas of aspirin, white flowers and peated melons. A little water reveals confit duck, ash rolled goats cheese, dried rosemary, moss, wet beach pebbles and diluted calpol. The mouth displays and unexpected sweetness alongside burning heather brooms, peat smoked meats, smoked grist, distant kippers, gauze, olive oil and chalk. Reduction teases out notes of raw sheep wool, engine grease, various waxes, minerals and peppery hessian character in the aftertaste.
