The nose has heather moors, beach driftwood bonfires, lime and a hint of lemon. The mouthfeel is thin with a little cling. The body has barbeque sauce, bonfires and a little pineapple. The finish has more bonfire smoke with lemon and a hint of satsuma.
Water brings out thick whorling that rapidly expands and settles into brief mottling. The nose gains pineapple and more lemon. The body gains more pineapple and some satsuma. The finish gains pineapple.
A superb lightly peated dram - I can't disagree with the title, it's for sunsets.
