Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonBig on restless sooty smoke. Tar and licorice. Also nice quantities of vanilla. This is a big nose. Looses some with time so hurry! Very tasty and in full balance with the nose. Sooty smoke. Tar. Vanilla. All in excellent doses. Very nice balance indeed between the smoke and all the rest.
Oliver KlimekNose: Maritime with a little peat, a hint of lemon - Palate: Rather sweet and sligthly fruity embedded in a bit of peat - Finish: Medium long, the peat gives way to sweetness - Overall: A nice alternative for those who don't need a true peat monster
