A very leafy opening – bog myrtle and mint followed by briny peat. Quite phenolic but just delicately peated with a serious weight of rich, oily, rubbery fruit along with a brief, stinky, manure note. A touch of citrus just about balances the oiliness.
On the palate it is full and weighty. Very oily and herbal. It’s a veritable sweet mouthful of butch, malty almost savoury fruit. Some gentle sooty peat wafts in on the middle and tries it’s best to force away through the oils, but that oily, rubbery character hangs on in there! Just like the nose a vein of briny citrus accented by shellfish notes runs through it and balances it – just! Good length with a long, sooty finish.
