Review and Tasting

Sampled on 17/09/2014

Appearance

Clear, pale golden.

Aroma

Briny with whiffs of seaweed, smoked kippers, coal dust, lemon zest and pine needles. Water reveals more smoke, faint apple and hard cheese.

Taste

Cracked black pepper, spice and peaty smoke with tar and medicinal notes. More tar, smoke and creosote with water. Faint ripe green apple sweetness.

Aftertaste

Tar, creosote and liquorice. A polarising love or hate malt.
