Nose: Elegant puffs of smoke, smoked salmon and cured meats. Lingering peat, burnt toffee and smoked oak.

Palate: Coastal smoke, brine, seaweed, sea salt, wood and lemon zest. Ash, smoky chocolate and kippers.

Finish: Orange chocolate, more peat and barbecued meats. 'Incredible' would be an understatement.
