Tasting Notes
Keith WoodNose: Slightly medicinal hay with just a touch of soft and gentle smoke. - Palate: Smooth and creamy, very soft peat with a little wood smoke and flowery hay in the background. The smoke and peat are more pronounced in the aftertaste where a hint of banana is also introduced. - Matching with food: You need a strong flavoured dish to accompany this one. - Overall Impresison: Excellent.
