The peatiness gives the nose some char and sharp smoke, like green wood on a bonfire; it also has medicinal elements (bandages, Germolene) and shell sand or sandstone dust. On the palate, marmalade and Battenberg sweetness is surrounded (though not overwhelmed) by menthol, tarry driftwood, charcoal and roofing felt on a beach hut. The reduced nose picks up liquorice, pipe dottles, burnt molasses, hessian bung cloths, salt and lime. The palate becomes much sweeter and tamer – apple tart and lemon meringue pie with a good mouth-tingling swirl of peat smoke. It ends up with a very acceptable balance indeed – eminently drinkable.

We were inside a classic steam locomotive cab with the train driver and the fireman crossing the Glenfinnan viaduct on our way to Hogwarts, no, in fact Mallaig. Cold, coal dust and ash was all around us but we were snug in a soft cashmere blanket. When taking a sip neat it felt like the stoker feeding coal into the firebox of the boiler. After we replenished water, we passed ‘the silver sands of Morar’ at full steam and arriving at Mallaig where we had smoked mussels as well as ‘burnt’ carrots and parsnips enjoying the view to Eigg, Rum and Skye.

The Panel found themselves squarely in an old highland farmyard at first nosing. Bags of earth, hay, silage, soot, old tool boxes, hessian and a big medicinal aspect with notes of mercurochrome and TCP. Charred pineapple, peat oils, bacon and salty minerals also appear. With water the smokiness gets louder with notes of soy sauce, burning heather, smoked lobster and a slug of 80 shilling beer. The palate displays smoked venison, tar, gentian, a couple of iodine tablets, burnt toffee and molten marshmallows. Reduction gives aged calvados and cider apples, parma violets, smoked barley and cow sheds.
