Tasting Notes

  • Nose: Smoke, iodine and ash, honey, light oak, hay and sunshine (a lightness to it)
  • Taste: Highly sulphuric, light menthol, intense black pepper, light creamy body that's overshadowed by the iodine and ash
  • Finish: Medicinal, the flavor doesn’t linger, fades sweetly to a light ash that just lays there
  • Comments: An interesting expression…it has a lot of smoke but the body and finish are light and soft; with water, the smoke is mellowed just a bit is still fairly strong
