Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonSomewhat restrained, yet delicate. Malt and vanilla, peat smoke. Crispy indeed. Rather nice balance. Pears and more so with water and more fruits (citrus stylie). But malt... Earthy, slight leather? Hm. Smoke. Didn't see it coming *that* much in the nose. Then maltyness and vanilla as more directly hinted at.. Strong! Fiery almost. Eucalyptus. So crisp. Tasty, lively, crisp, balanced. Good stuff.
