About Lively as a caffeinated squirrel: Our old friend by the seaside is back! The expression really explodes with maritime accents surrounding ripe fruits, vanilla sweetness and honeycomb. Terribly complex for its age, the finish stuns with salted confections and floral intensity. 

Tasting Panel Note: A soft cloud from the ocean drifted across our noses, as we discovered peppered mackerel and crab salad with rock samphire served on the machair – all combined with pear, jelly baby and marshmallow sweetness. Lively as a caffeinated squirrel, the palate entertained us with a performance of orange zest, pears and dried pineapple, plum skins, pepper and extra strong mints – with, yet again, that balancing sweetness, this time with a chunk of waxy honeycomb. In reduction, the nose acquired saltwater taffy and dried seaweed, watermelon and honeysuckle. The palate produced malted bedtime drink, salted caramel, spun sugar and peanut brittle.
