Soaring sweetness and ocean spray

sold out

Various bass notes grounded the nose (tobacco, creosote, burnt sticks, white pepper, chipotle chilli, balsamic reduction) but soaring on a breeze of clean, minty smoke and ocean spray, was a kite made of toffee, puff candy and chocolate melted over ice-cream. The palate suggested smouldering bonfires, nippy sweeties, liquorice, menthol and ash, with barbecued chocolate bananas and Weetabix. Water freshened the nose – chocolate limes, perfumed soap, kiwi and pear belle Helene with mint sprigs. The reduced palate was sweeter, less smoky and very tasty –rhubarb crumble, ice-cream and banana chips; charred walnuts in the after-taste. From Scotland’s most northerly distillery.
