The nose on this is salty and fruity, with some seaweed, a hint of rubber and a prick of alcohol even at 43% ABV.    The taste is rich with toffee, burnt coffee, caramel at first then some more acrid camp fire notes and along with bitter fruit peels and spices.  The finish is gentle hum of heat and peppermint along with some smokiness.  At 43% ABV it can take a drop of water and still hold up, but it doesn't need it.  Overall a delicious expression from one of my favourite distilleries.

    The nose has lots of fruit, sultanas and even pineapple, with a hint of smoke.    The taste is rich and spicy. with warm honey notes (like a hot toddy), more fruit and smoke in the finish.  This one gets lots of good reviews, and I can see why, there is a lot going on and it's all good.
