Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonHardbread. Some smoke. Hm. What else? Some dry fruits too. A nice round taste that turns spicy and in the aftertaste smoky. Not at all bad. Very interesting and tasty development.
Craig DanielsColour, light medium gold. Nose has lots of green characters, green wood, and green wood smoke, pistachio nuts and smoked vine canes, (like a mix of young Laphroaig and young Caol Ila all from bourbon wood). Palate has pistachio and green wood with more ashes and fireplaces. Finish is long and slightly fiery with a reprise of the green wood smoke. A little bit more characterful and interesting than the earlier version
Krishna NukalaPeat and smoke, typical Islay or a Connemara? Very sweet and spicy like green paprika (MMA 2010 blind tasting)
Oliver KlimekColor: Straw - Nose: Very intense, peat, citrus, some vanilla - Palate: Very peaty, smoked ham, lemon, vanilla, quite spicy but also sweet - Finish: Very long, sweet and spicy smoke - Overall: About as spicy as the Springbank CV, but here the peat acts as a strong counterpart. Sweetness and fruitiness are enhanced by a few drops of water. Nice!
