Review and Tasting
Sampled on 17/09/2013
Clear, deep old gold amber.
Earthy raisons and linseed oil rubbed leather with delicate Lapsang Souchong peat smoke, iodine and seaweed. A splash of water bolsters the smoky dried fruit.
Surprisingly gentle giant with salty, smoky peat, dried fruit and fruitcake. With water: creamy barley-malt laced with peat, sea salt, smoked orchard fruit and vanilla.
Peaty black pepper, vegetal peat, medicinal smoke and sea saltiness.
