We were delighted to find a typically waxy and luxuriously textured aroma at first. Opulent notes of heather honey, barbour jackets, hessian sackcloth and earthy dunnage all greeted us. Underneath: a scattering a trail mix and subtle tropical fruits. Reduction brought out further earthy qualities such as chickpeas, hummus, lime oil, toasted sunflower seeds, cinnamon bark, dried sage and rosemary, wild garlic and aged ointments. A glimmer of minerality. The mouth is all waxy garden fruits, lemon peel, seagreens, delicately coastal, Scottish IPA, dried herbs and mineral oil. With water it throws up aged mead, old wine cellar, cough medicine, wood resins, lamp oil, aged Sauternes and lanolin.
