Nose
Lightly oiled and perfumed with orange Muscat, citrus, pineapple, honeydew melon and barley. A light sawdusty oak note appears. Beautifully exotic and complex.
Palate
A beautifully soft and succulent palate of juicy barley, apricot, pineapple and melon with an enticing sliver of citrus and stony notes. Lovely dusty oak with hints of violets come through on the middle.
Finish
Long and juicy with the oak beginning to dry but the fruit counters. Lightly coffeed and mineral after-taste.
Comment
Hmmm... I think I'm having a When Sally Met Harry moment!

Nose
Lovely light smoke, some barbequed bananas, golden syrup and fresh vanilla pods.
Palate
The vanilla develops first, followed by a slightly sharp smokiness and tempered by creamy custard.
Finish
Short, with a light medicinal smokiness.
Comment
Well balanced, with enough going on to make this a very good choice for anyone new to peat smoke.
