Nose neat: TCP, Elastoplast, Germolene, pencil sharpenings, peat smoke, smoked fish, a hint of polished leather, new car smell, burning heather twigs.
Taste neat: Initially sweet with a spicy pepperiness, fizzy with a briny saltiness, medicinal (Germolene again), kelp on the shore, charred wood, salty sea shells, peaty and savoury.
Nose diluted: The peat and smoke is vastly reduced, quite viney (tomato leaves), salty shoreline, charred sticks, creamy with a slight hint of Germolene, smoked haddock poached in milk.
Taste diluted: Sweeter, with Coal Tar soap, sherbet - but far less fizzy than when neat, burnt twigs, Germolene, Muscovado sugar, salty smoked haddock in a rich Cullen Skink.
