Nose: Peat smoke jumps out, followed by cloves, grist and summer fruit. Distinct caramel overtones. Wet wooden floor, damp cellar.

Palate: Smoky again, spicy and oily. Very firm. Sweet liquorice. Extremely satisfying undiluted!

Finish: Early on delivers medicinal tones but quickly transforms into malty, bready heaven.

Overall: Smoky superstar from the mainland, an absolute essential in your cupboard. Unreal value.
