"Starting off on rock pools and a salty sea air, this blended malt transports you to the coast of Scotland. There's a touch of smoke and some hints of lemon too. The palate is nice and oily with a pinch of salt, but also honey and pepper, as well as a bit of ash. The finish lingers for a little while on lovely coastal notes."
