Sample sent to me. I was expecting peat from the name and bottling art.
But it's peat free.
Nose: Big big fruity, apricot, toffee apple, candle wax, Christmas cake, raisin, fig, medjool date, green cut plant stems, manuka honey, topuch of citrus. Heady and rich combination of light fruit with sticky sweet moneys and toffees. Could nose this all day.
Palate: little hotter than I was expecting, white pepper, quite astringent wood, cherry, fig, citrusy, grapefruit peel, quite a lot of sherry notes... struggling to pick out notes from the burn and astringency... a little disappointing after that sublime nose.
Finish: fruit, oak, plum, grapefruit peel, Christmas cake... quite long.
