Appearance: Full yellow gold. Light beading.
Nose: An interesting nose combining over-ripe fruit (oranges, apples, pears) with peat smoke, engine oil and carbolic. Water releases estery notes (acetone and pear drops), soon covered by smouldering charcoal, bubbling tar and (later dry seaweed): a beach bonfire.
Taste: At natural strength, the taste is maritime, smoky and hot. With water the initial taste is much sweeter, with considerable saltiness and smoke throughout. It remains warming.
Comment: A bracing dram for a windy day by the sea. Elemental, and a good example of the make.
