Tasting Notes

Nose

Earthy with dry, dusty smokiness. Garden bonfire (dead), then créme brûlée/marshmallows; reminiscent of clay soil. Water calms it, brings out a hidden silkiness. That said, it lacks substance.

Palate

Immediate smoke. Best with a little water which allows banana creaminess to develop.

Finish

The smoke returns.

Comment

Though it feels good just lacking in weight. Maybe it would have improved with another five years in cask.
