Panel's tasting note: "The nose declares itself with shed-loads of vanilla, panettone, dried pineapple and coconut – then slowly another tale unfolds – sheep’s wool, light smoke, ash, distant heather moor-burn and coastal elements. On the neat palate, unmistakable peat smoke and wood ash combine tastily with brown sugar and toasted marshmallows – the finish has curious anise and nutmeg spice with almost medicinal and resinous echoes.
The reduced nose has toasted cumin seeds and dried herbs, incense smoke and yellow Chartreuse. The palate now has serenely restrained smoke, nougat, sugared buns, heather and the herbal and wild flower scents of the summer machair."
