Flavour Profile: Nose
Cautious, with slight prickle at first, then sweet, smoky-peat wafts of treacle toffee, smoke with iodine. Rich, sweet fruit. Ripe figs. Raisins. Fire and brimstone.
Flavour Profile: Palate
Great to drink at natural strength, the taste seamlessly moves from sweetness through saltiness to pepper and finally, smoke The mouth-filling texture is rich and smooth beginning with the sweetness of soft-fudge, then a balancing saltiness gradually yields to a peppery heat. The expected chilli-pepper kick at the back is gloriously unmuted.
Flavour Profile: Finish
Long, hot, smoky, and delicious, with mouth-cooling Sichuan pepper in the aftertaste amid lingering threads of peat smoke
