|Keith Wood||Nose: 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. |
