Upfront, an initial smooth and creamy sweetness is followed closely by a strong flash of salty maritime notes. A dry bonfire smokiness lingers with emerging hints of softer citrusy notes.
Sharp and salty sea breeze with more hints of sugary sweetness coming through- notes of rich icing, carrot cake, salted caramel and lemon drizzle. Peat fire smokiness in the middle.
A long and warming spiciness to finish with lingering hints of wood smoke.
