Review and Tasting

Sampled on 18/11/2013

Appearance

Clear, pale straw golden with gleaming luminosity.

Aroma

Peaty smoke, Elastoplast, soot and creosote with salty sea air and sweet freshly sliced apple fruit.

Taste

You’ll need water to tame this monster, but water also amplifies wonderful creamy vanilla pastry (cream slice) which balances the salty, spicy smoky peat.

Aftertaste

Sweet tar, salty butter and lingering bonfire smokiness.
