Petrolic and mineral-like aromas entice the nose, along with notes of violet sweets, rosemary and Edinburgh Rock. As the bottling name suggests, candied violets fill the palate, alongside lime zest, sugar-coated fruits, floral honey and citrus fruits. Gentle peat smoke lingers in the finish with a hint of burnt rosemary.
