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.
