Nose
There may be some smoke in the back, showing in antiseptic, coal and creosote, mixed in with vanilla ice cream. A wet dog rests on a path of wet slate, chewing on a tube of mint toothpaste.
Palate
Silky then chewy; sweet and smoky. Caramel and butterscotch mix with hickory smoke, before a tarry character overtakes everything alongside a numbing Szechuan pepper heat.
Finish
Puffs of smoke from my lungs whilst on a sand dune, enjoying vanilla fudge.
Comment
Brash and ballsy – for peat freaks.

Nose
Farmyard, wet straw and horses, goat's cheese and honey. Fruit, apple compote, fresh baked sourdough bread, wrapped in a wonderful smoke laden blanket.
Palate
Burnt ends (a good thing), sweet BBQ marinated lamb, almost tamarind, then the smoke. Wood and coal mix, sweet and mineral at the same time.
Finish
Brief and full of smoke. Dried, leaving a syrup waffle note.
Comment
Water ramps up the sweetness with this and tames that alcohol prickle.
