Tasting Notes
Oliver KlimekNose: Quite "farmy" at first, compost and even a trace of manure, with water it becomes smoky and maritime - Palate: Medium peat, tropical fruit, a hint of coconut and a pinch of salt - Finish: Extremely long, salty fruity peat - Overall: This is an extremely complex malt with aromas that seem to come and go in waves during time.
