High concentration with an immediate wisp of perfumed smoke. Peat retained. An elegant mix of phenols, honeyed sweetness, toffee, and even some pineapple. Robust yet complex.
Peat from the start. Slightly dry tannins and dry smoke. Singed grass. Hessian.
Dark chocolate, undergrowth, ashes.
Everything has deepened and become richer but those oils have been retained and the smoke has controlled everything.
