“Extremely smoky taste with a character of, pear, lion honey, straw, oyster bowl, vanilla, tar, grapefruit and salmiak (salty liquorice)”
“refreshing with peat, smoke, iodine and diesel…Earthy tones with smoke, peat, iodine and sea air…Finish long and smoky with tar and iodine”
Nose : Nice smoky salty nose. Some lemons, apples, and peaches as well. Reminds me of Port Charlotte.
Palate : Medium very creamy mouthfeel. Sweet with vanilla, apples, and lemon meringue pie. Brine and gentle smoke.
Finish : Medium short finish. The gentle smoke comes in stronger with time. It also gets more medicinal, reminding me more of Laphroaig on the finish than Port Charlotte. A good amount of black pepper spice as well. The lemons carry through.
