Review and Tasting

Sampled on 02/05/2016

Appearance

Clear, golden amber.

Aroma

Earthy coal dust, smoky bacon, oak and liquorice with light pepper spice and faint vanilla fudge. Water reveals powerful creosote.

Taste

Charcoal, coal dust, smoked ham and creosote with ginger, black pepper and vanilla. Sweeter with water, amplifying chocolatey creosote and vanilla.

Aftertaste

Creosote, chocolaty vanilla fudge, coal dust and black pepper spice.

Overall

Charcoal, coal dust, creosote characterise and smoked ham. This is a love or hate Marmite of a malt.
