Review and Tasting

Sampled on 29/12/2014

Appearance

Clear, light golden amber.

Aroma

Lightly smoked bacon, tobacco leaf and overripe banana with toasted almonds and walnuts.

Taste

Assertive but approachable peat smoke, buttery almond croissant, vanilla and blackened banana with mild nutmeg and clove spice.

Aftertaste

Smoky bacon, biscuit and black pepper spice. Overall: Virgin oak finishing appears to tame peaty smoke.
