Notes

The dark side of Campbeltown! A wonderful abundance of mint, fruit sorbets and a thrilling and deft web of peat that never dominates but always hangs in the background. Layered complexity, baked banana, marzipan - unusual and extremely appealing. Over time it develops a more maritime edge full of seashore bluster, shellfish, pebbles and sea greens. Water brings pick and mix sweeties, molten marshmallows, root beer floats and swimming pools. Aged medical tinctures, salted honey and antiseptic-soaked bandages. In the mouth it is warming, the peat is a little elevated and texture is dense, layered and thrilling. Notes of heather tea, fresh linen, salted liquorice, bouillon stock and mint tea. Reduction delivered a silkier mouthfeel. More minerals, more flint smoke, surf-washed rocks in an oil spill, fermenting sourdough and wispy bonfire smoke. Wonderful!
