Tasting Notes

Nose

Charred oak and coffee with thick, oily peat. Tar, creosote and burnt herbs follow. The corn gives weight to the aromas and with time a touch of cinder toffee and dark chocolate.

Palate

Sweet, oaky and vanilla with oily corn, followed by salt, peat, coffee and tar. Well balanced with a touch of treacle, smoked meat, bitter chocolate and lightly medicinal herbs.

Finish

Long with the charred oak returning but the tar, smoke and treacle lingers.

Comment

A blend of peated malt and Bourbon? Very odd, but it works surprisingly well.
