Nose: plenty of maritime peat, interlaced with honey, caramel, and a kick of spice.
Palate: More smoke, like a bonfire on the beach, mixed with notes of dark chocolate, espresso and hibiscus.
Finish: the embers from the bonfire continue to burn in the palate with a delicious hint of toffee sweetness.
