Tasting Notes

"This is young and sweet, in the best possible way. Spirit-y almost, with plenty of vanilla and lemon thrown in. There's a good brine-y, coastal influence here, with a dose of seaweed and sea spray. Very soft wood smoke, and surprisingly gentle. The palate is dryer than you'd expect, and really spicy—think ginger and chili pepper. The sweetness makes an encore. If you're looking for an affordable, coastal, cask strength dram, look no further."
