Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Nose: Initially sweet and briny before notes of butter shortbread, vanilla, pear drops and raisin develop.

    Palate: Sweet and rounded with a very subtle peat influence combining with butter tablet, soft fruit and mineral notes.

    Finish: A long evolving finish with notes reminiscent of our earthy dunnage warehouses.  The peat is slightly more prominent and integrates well with lighter notes of candy and lemon zest.
