Clear, pale straw yellow.
Moderate peat smoke and salt with peach pie, caramel shortbread, dried fruit and orange peel. More citrus emerges with water.
Soft peat smoke, tobacco leaves and lemon zest with vanilla and sea salt. Water exposes slight sweetness which perfectly balances saltiness.
Delicate smoke, old leather, salt and zesty lemon. Incredibly good for a malt of such a tender age.
Closure: Natural cork stopper
