Box - Early Days 2The High Coast Distillery
Sweet spice, sour fruit, pine needles and hints of crushed juniper berries. Soft smoke emerges, both peat- and wood-fired, with hints of sea breezes, vanilla cream and zesty leaves.
Oily in texture and intense: singed lemons, earthy peat and a crashing wave of seaside brine. Rich dark chocolate sits underneath, with salted caramel, soft nutmeg and bursts of apples and pears alongside.
The chocolate continues, becoming sweeter. Smokiness returns and the fades.
