The nose evoked complex Hebridean vistas of rock-pools, fresh sea breezes, wild herbs and flowers – also vanilla custard, clean ash, some citrus and hints of liquorice, camphor and Euthymol. The palate had a very attractive toffee sweetness, with suspicions of passion-fruit, pineapple and mango – all balanced by some nippy aniseed heat, burnt twigs, smoke and tar – an interesting mouth-feel – lively and yet calming at the same time. The reduced nose – sea-side creosote, floral peat smoke, pipe ash and pata negra. The palate – tar on a Danish pastry, rauchbier, lemon balm and beach bonfires – we found it really hard to spit out.
