Review and Tasting


Sampled on 29/12/2014

Appearance:

Clear, light golden amber.

Aroma:

Lightly smoked bacon, tobacco leaf and overripe banana with toasted almonds and walnuts.

Taste:

Assertive but approachable peat smoke, buttery almond croissant, vanilla and blackened banana with mild nutmeg and clove spice.

Aftertaste:

Smoky bacon, biscuit and black pepper spice. Overall: Virgin oak finishing appears to tame peaty smoke.
