Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonViolently smoky, and quite some sulphury dried fruits thrown in. Aggressive nose, not the most well-balanced. Time is a must-have here, that calms it down considerably and the odd notes on sulphur goes away, thanks for that. Quite some dark smokiness in here. Pipe tobacco, tarry, thickish. Especially in the aftertaste. But also dried sweeter fruits. Complex and intense. And clearly enjoyable.
Krishna NukalaBonfire smoke. Lots of sweet notes on the nose. Rich complex nose. Lovely madicinal palate with dark fruits, licorice with a long long peaty finish suggesting a thoroughbred whisky (Blind tasting notes MMA 2013)
