Bottled at 52.2% abv.

Natural colour and non chill filtered

 

Tasting Notes

Colour: Tawny

Nose: Like a fishing boat in the distance making its way back into harbour. Gentle waves of smoke and coal tar mingle with delicate lemon and pineapple

Palate: As the boat gets closer the old rope and weathered larch that have been sailing the seas under teh waatchul eye of the skipper start to become more apparent: cashews roasting on an open fire on the quayside are balanced with notes of fennel and lightly toasted brown bread.

Finish: And now it’s arrived: iodine, more fennel and some fresh mint leaves welcome the boys home with the catch.
