Color: Crisp pale gold

Drank: Neat, in a glencairn. Rested 10 minutes.

Nose: A bit of smoke, salted fish, pine resin, the alcohol is certainly very forward to my nose. A bit of citrusy lemon and raisins.

Taste: Strong burn and smoke with tannined oak, followed by notes of vanilla and honey. Touches of dried fruits and a splash of ginger.

Finish: A bit dry and leaves a nice warmth with cinnamon and honeycomb flavors. Medium in length with a sort of fresh salty air of the sea with a nice campfire aroma.

Thoughts: I quite enjoyed this. Very rich flavors.

Score: 87 out of 100
