Rich gold appearance. On the nose, rich peat smoke and spicy wood come quickly to the fore, backed by the sweet opulence of soft, ripe fruit: bananas, pears, plums. Medium bodied full and rich, with good legs. On the palate an immediate, mouth-filling sweetness balanced by an attractive smoky-malty dryness, with sea salt centre stage. A splash of water softens the spicy edges and rounds the whole. The finish is long, smooth and sweet, becoming oaky-dry with slivers of dark chocolate and salted caramel.
