Farmy and sweet, with wet hay and big peat, then sherry casks delivers beeswax, leather, walnuts and vanilla, but the typical coastal elements of Port Charlotte easily dominate.
Powerful and creamy but softer than expected, big on smoke with wonderful touches of oak, smoked bacon, sherry sweetness comes forward now, then oranges, sultanas and some apricots. Water delivers more flavours but it is a little less sweet.
Long finish length, spicy and slightly salty, with cinnamon and faintly dryness in the background.
