Description

A bewildering nose full of unexpected tropical fruit syrups, ripe mango, pineapple cubes and banana. Finally a slow incoming tide of medicines, herbal syrups and oily peat. Quite thrilling and almost akin to some kind of old style Islay malt. In time it opens up into a wonderfully fresh bluster of sea air, beach pebbles and mineral salts. With water it's all grassy olive oil, chopped chives, mustard powder, ointments and hessian. A gravelly, earth-flecked mineral side with paraffin, waxes and soot. The palate is prickly and hot at first but eases open with oily smoked fish, brine, antiseptic, iodine, swimming pools, plasters and hints of very salty bovril. Lean, sinewy and powerful stuff! Dilution breaks things up nicely and makes everything oilier, fatter, gloopier and more straightforwardly peaty and saline.
