Review and Tasting

Sampled on 06/07/2011

Appearance

Clear, pale straw gold.

Aroma

Warming cottage log fire smoke, with a waft of dry peat. The smoke, while appealing, dominates other aromas even when hydrated to approx. 40% abv, though yields a slight sweet perfumed aroma.

Taste

Sweet, and immediately salty with more dry peaty smoke and barbecue charcoal.

Aftertaste

Long-lasting bone dry tannic smoky finish. Extremely smoky yet approachable.
