Intriguing aromas of Fisherman’s Friends, hessian, kelp and suspicions of peat smoke. Also runny honey and fruits in custard. Yes – the palate confirmed it – floral, heathery peat and cough mixture; but lemon sherbet and gooseberry jam lifted it above the bass clef. The reduced nose seemed very old school and had us imagining Blair Witch twig sculptures around a highland bothy – also atmospheric hints of sea-spray and smoking hay – was there something of the Wicker Man here? The palate now found characteristic waxed fruits, chalky seashells, cinnamon sugar, polished wood and again that tantalising wisp of smoke.
