Review and Tasting

Clear, golden amber.
Smoky vegetal peat, old oak and leather with eucalyptus and fabric Elastoplast. Faint notes of peanut butter, crushed mint leaves.
Powerful peaty vegetal smoke with dried fruit, pine, coal tar and eucalyptus. Faint bitter orange peel, butter and salty earthiness. Water tames but doesn’t supress this sherried malt.
Coal tar, earthy brine and spiced oak with freshening lemon zest. My guess is that this is from an American oak sherry cask.
