Review and Tasting

Sampled on 08/09/2013

Appearance

Clear, mid to deep golden.

Aroma

Smoked kippers and coal dust with vanilla, cocoa, clove and overripe honeyed banana.

Taste

Subtle underlying vanilla sweetness eases the brutality of the smoky peat, tar, clove, ginger and cracked black pepper spice. Water amplifies the peppery spice so I’d keep the water on the side.

Aftertaste

Long, smoky clove spice with lingering dark chocolate.
