Nose: At first this is salty and medicinal. There’s a heavy peat layer combined with a sweeter honey note. There’s also a hint of rubber, but it’s feint and hides in the background. A savory and oily note sits somewhere in the middle and there are notes of oak and vanilla sitting on the sides. This is quite complex. The longer it stays in the glass, the more the peat and the oak comes together. There’s a hint of coconut coming through after a few minutes in the glass. With time the savory note moves forward as well as sweet honey and vanilla.
Mouth: It’s spicy at first with some dustiness and white pepper. Then a nice fruitiness comes through with sweet red apples and a twist of lemon. The rubber note, as well as the savory oily note, builds the bulk of the taste the longer it stays in the mouth. A ”leathery” peat resides in the background. A slight bitterness builds up over time.
Finish: The peppery notes are immediate, then the bulk comes rolling through in waves. First comes some sweet fruitiness, then the rubber and savory notes and finally the peatiness. The peat creates a leather pouch surrounding all the other flavours. A slightly astringent and fresh oakiness also gets put into the pouch. The sweetness slowly fades way and the last things to stay are leather, oak and a bitter lemon note.
