Tasting Notes

"The nose is slightly coastal, with dried seaweed, hints of peat and wet rocks, but there are also some pleasant notes of mango and peach liqueur. There's salt on the palate, and just a hint of pink grapefruit, accompanied by subtle peat smoke and whiff of coconut shavings. Not the most complex, but nonetheless a fine example of the distillery style."
