Review and Tasting


Sampled on 21/01/2011

Appearance:

Pale gold.

Aroma:

Soft, approachable nose of salty smoked haddock with aromas of coal, tar, charcoal and soap.

Taste:

The sooty, minerally palate has wafts of smoke but not intensely so and is mildly disappointing compared to the nose.

Aftertaste:

The dry finish features light cedar smoke.
