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.
