On the nose: gentle, strange, beguiling. There’s a solvent quality at first, which gives way to something very floral. Ashy, but not smokey. Seaweed. Boiled spinach. Coastal trawlers puttering by on a spring morning. Definitely maritime notes.
In the mouth: gentle ashes, lemon curd, sea spray. There’s a chilli pepper heat to this. Salted caramel. The texture is curiously light – Lowland in character – and yet there’s a huge amount of flavour from it. The ashes become mixed up with bitter wood, but it’s not unpleasant. Floral. Honey. What an interesting combination though. Citrus sourness hangs about quite a bit, mingling with that wood. It’s slight in stature, but aggressive. A bit like an angry Robert Carlyle.
