Nose: The juniper wood is really jumping out of the glass. The smoke is subtle yet clearly present. There’s honey, lemon and a hint of oak. It feels young and fresh with a vibrant and aromatic nose.
Mouth: Sweetness with honey and muted butterscotch notes. The juniper wood mixes nicely with the dusty, dry smoke. A spicyness builds up, which fits nicely with the special wood notes that the juniper wood brings.
Finish: It starts out with some menthol, then the smoke and wood takes over. The dusty juniper wood is a red thread throughout. The wood gives a hint of mango and peaches somewhere in the middle of the finish. The spices carry all the way through. Very pleasant finish with the original smoke and wood notes lingering.
This expression was released in 2013. The smoke comes from burning both peat and juniper to stop the germination. The casks used for maturation is american oak, swedish oak, refills and ex-oloroso sherry casks.
