Distillers Tasting Notes
Appearance: Light gold.
Nose: Smoke, perfume, sweetness and complexity. Punchy at first, with maritime notes, even oak smoke to the fore. Behind this, vanilla wood and a wild, heathery outdoors smell. Water heightens the creamy vanilla note, behind which lie white peppercorn and burning heather.
Body: Medium.
Palate: An immediate sweet flash of coconut soon becomes medicinal, then starts to smoulder. The smoke ignites into flame [szechuan pepper] then starts to dry. Water calms this down and out come the maritime notes, alongside the embers of a now-dead wood fire.
Finish: Becomes increasingly spicy approaching the big, maritime, robust and lingering finish. When dilute it becomes increasingly subtle and liquorous, but the smoke still drives through towards the finish.
