Tasting Notes

Official Tasting Notes

Nose: Rich aromas of sun-ripened red apple with delicate sweet spice. Notes of strawberry liquorice with tangy citrus elements give way to subtle smoked kipper notes.

Palate: Intense; mouth-watering crushed black pepper is followed by flavours of baked apple. Traces of fresh orange entwine with mature oak. A slight herbal edge develops.

Finish: Long and sweet with whisps of peat smoke.
