Nose: Some chocolate, cinnamon and spices, some coastal notes flow in and a notable hint of boat tar appears on the nose.
Palate: All the hall marks of a rich dram from the start with a deeply complex mix of oils on the front of the palate, with a rich fruity and compellingly waxy mid palate. A dry smoky presence steadily builds in the glass until the finish arrives with rolling tidal sea weed and hints of salted toffee.
