Review and Tasting
Sampled on 29/12/2014
Clear, light golden amber.
Lightly smoked bacon, tobacco leaf and overripe banana with toasted almonds and walnuts.
Assertive but approachable peat smoke, buttery almond croissant, vanilla and blackened banana with mild nutmeg and clove spice.
Smoky bacon, biscuit and black pepper spice. Overall: Virgin oak finishing appears to tame peaty smoke.
Bottle Size: 700 ml
Closure: Natural cork stopper
