Tingling and very strong, sweet, vinous, smoky, dry, sourish apples, leather, bitter, oak, tannins, more sweetness with water;
Dry, tannins, oak, peat and smoke alike, aspirin?

- SMWS Tasting Notes: The nose neat was just like compote made with blood smoked plums, red wine and star anise whilst the palate that awaited us was the fiery, spicy, smoky sensation of smoky Texan style pulled brisket or smoked Peking duck. With water the aroma was that of smoked red rye ale, orange bitters and pure lavender honey and the taste reminded us of warm brioche with burnt fig, honeycomb and caramel ice cream. After nine years in an ex-bourbon hogshead, we transferred this whisky directly into a 1st fill wine barrique, which the cooperage had specially charred and fitted with new heavily toasted heads for us.
