Notes

The beginning is reminiscent of a morning dip in the sea. All sea air, Atlantic vigour and freshness. Also herbal tones along with pumpernickel bread, malt loaf, crushed sea shells, beach towel and iodine. With water there’s fiery ginger beer, cinnamon balls and a slight creaminess like smoked vanilla. Seaweed floating on an oil slick. The palate displays an initial intense sweetness and further herbal qualities. Unexpectedly for this sort of whisky we find Dundee cake and toffee pecans, before cough syrup and an old coal scuttle. Water perfects the texture in the mouth. The youth is also more obvious with a grizzly and gristy type of raw smoke but it’s hugely enjoyable. A simple yet perfect wee breakfast dram to enliven you for west coast outdoor pursuits.
