Intense aromas of peet-reek, smoke, seaside character
and burnt ropes, with a subtle apple-fruitiness in the
background. The palate is full, round and tremendously
complex. Water brings out a spice-laden, sweet vanilla
character, as well. The finish lasts for many minutes.
Pale golden color. Sweet clover honey, heather, and peat aromas. A soft, yet rich, entry leads to a sweetish medium-full body with caramel, orange peel, raw honey, toast, vibrant peat and pepper flavors. Finishes with a honeycomb, iodine, and toasty grain fade. Very drinkable, exquisitely balanced, and approachable.
