Tasting Notes

Nose

A little peat hit up front, really sweet smoke to it. Almost leaf mulch, cornflakes with almond milk. Cider poached pears. Peat grows, becoming wood fires, flatbread cooking on a hot skillet.

Palate

Big sweetness, smoked venison and fatty bacon. Lots of milk chocolate and smoked black tea. Hot smoked salmon slices.

Finish

Medicinal smoke builds, with underlying barley sweetness.

Comment

Glorious stuff. Lovely integration of peat and sweetness. Certainly one to bring in a hip flask for a long forest walk.
