Review and Tasting

Sampled on 11/09/2014

Appearance

Clear, golden amber.

Aroma

Toasted pencil shavings, grass, cigarette ash and toffee. Water opens grassiness with crushed mint leaves.

Taste

Peat is initially subdued but then kicks in and grows. Menthol, chamois leather, peachy fruit and light saltiness. Water subdues peat and reveals apple fruit.

Aftertaste

Long chewy finish with maritime saltiness and lingering peat-smoke.
