Nose: Deceptively gentle, offering icing sugar and a slight earthy smoke, though time in the glass crescendos the coastal peat showing muscular phenolic character.
Palate: Notes of peat smoke along with damp wool, icing sugar, slight floral notes and even more peat!
Finish: Unmistakably coastal fading slowly with light kippers, tar, and more smoke.
