"The nose opens with a surprising and wonderful fruity quality, showing pear drops, lemon sherbets and fresh limes. The palate delivers more of these citric fruits with a hint of sea salt and honey glazed ham. The finish has us in Islay with more sea salt, burnt leather, toasted barley and a warming ginger spice".
