Tasting Notes

"A fairly coastal first impression, there's a slight hint of rubber and iodine, but mostly gentle peat, some baking spices and creamy vanilla. There’s a whisper of burlap, tobacco leaves and hemp rope as well. The palate is pretty oily. The arrival is fairly ashy with a good amount of wood smoke, a nice salinity. The iodine makes an encore as well. There’s really nothing to fault here, especially as this single malt is still in its infancy."
