A fresh clean peaty aroma, like a sea breeze carrying some smoke and mown grass? Somehow astringent and clinical.

It delivers a strong attack on the taste buds hinting at its youth and the moderately high ABV. The peat influence is quite woody and bitter. There is some apple fruitiness but it’s not sweet enough to balance or mask the bitterness. The finish is fresh and bitter with some smoke.

It’s quite a refreshing astringent malt, and in the right circumstances it might slip down unnoticed, but purely as a drink it’s a little too flawed to impress.

I hope this is just a bad batch, but J. Murray seems to consistently score this expression quite low, so perhaps not and this is one to avoid.
