Tasting Notes
Keith WoodGlass: Spiegelau - Colour: Rich gold / amber - Nose: Slightly medicinal wellies (Wellington boots) in the middle of a peat bog on a damp Autumn day. - Palate: Solid peat, almost without (wood) smoke, but offering slight hints of seaweed and a lump of Scottish jetty. - With 3 drops of water: Some of that missing smoke is suddenly released. - Finish: Very long - Overall Impression and author's note: My first Superstition and it certainly won't be my last. I like this, it has good, solid peat.
