Nose
Smoky, fungal, wet socks, even moist face flannel along with biscuit and Bran Flakes.
Palate
Dry and slightly closed to start but as it doesn't like water, give it time to develop when out comes roasted nuts and toffee-ed sweetness which balances the big smoke.
Finish
Clean and smoky.
Comment
Well put together.

Nose
Peaty, with a distinct cheesy nose. Applewood smoke cheese. Meaty also.
Palate
Sweet, malty. Then the smoke (still smoked cheese) takes the control. Oily, quite thick. A fresh whiff mint.
Finish
Dry, nearly sooty but not yet.
Comment
Unusual peaty character. This cheesy note (not a butyric one) annoyed me but there is some balance in the malty sweetness.
