Review and Tasting


Sampled on 11/09/2014

Appearance:

Clear, golden amber.

Aroma:

Toasted pencil shavings, grass, cigarette ash and toffee. Water opens grassiness with crushed mint leaves.

Taste:

Peat is initially subdued but then kicks in and grows. Menthol, chamois leather, peachy fruit and light saltiness. Water subdues peat and reveals apple fruit.

Aftertaste:

Long chewy finish with maritime saltiness and lingering peat-smoke.
