Tasting Notes

Nose

Needs lots of time to open in the glass. Maderia cake, oak, cigar smoke and rumbling peatness.

Palate

Starts with a mix of scented, but sooty peat smoke (like inside a kiln) dry wood, rooty flavours.

Finish

Long, smoky then softening.

Comment

A grumbly bass-note blend but it all seems slightly muted, as if the blanket of smoke has dampened things down.
