Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonInitially faint chemical notes but fortunately they disappeared quickly. But strong on alcohol even though it's not very high in ABV. With a dash of water it turns real pleasant with, apart from the smoke, butterscotch and nice fruits (apricots?). Quite pure and gets fruitier with more water. Tastewise round, on malty sweetness, dry exotic fruits, burned aftertaste. A nice complex one, this.
