Tasting Notes.

Neat

Colour: Light straw

Nose : Sweet, burnt sugar aromas with wood smoke and a gentle phenolic / medicinal note. Hints of Granny Smith apples.

Palate : Peat smoke and ash followed by sweet, toasted malt. Hints of spice and charred oak are followed by subtle phenolic flavours.


With Water

Nose : The sweetness is still evident but the phenolic character is more pronounced. Medicinal notes - Germolene and TCP are laced by a smoky, earthy aroma. A delicate floral edge is also present.

Palate : Smoky - hints of creosote and birch wood. A sweet, treacle toffee note follows. A rich, mulled fruit flavour also adds balance. However, the peat smoke character is never far away.

Body : Bold, tempered by the sweetness and fruit notes.

Finish : Smoky with sweet malt notes.
