    Tasting notes from DramFool

    Nose neat: Very unctuous and sweet! Burnt twigs, smoke, Horlicks, barley, Germolene, icing sugar, old books and antique leather. Sherbet straws and McCowan's Toffee are present too.

    Taste neat: Surprisingly sweet and gentle at first, then Germolene and pencil sharpenings appear, before a rush of burnt twigs and smoke.

    Nose diluted: Pencil sharpenings, icing sugar, vanilla and Sherbet Fountain with a thread of smoke.

    Taste diluted: Very sweet with vanilla, Creme Anglais, Germolene, Elastoplast, pencil sharpenings and lots of smoke.

    a new bottling of a bottler who is beginning to be recognized.
    150ppm!
    • Nose
      oily peat and creaminess! cream with herbal sensations, then lemon, some caramelized spices!
      glue back on the dry and crushed almond, then a little mandarin!
    • Taste
      a smoky side arrives, with burnt notes!
      then the peat is moist, oily and dry, almost grassy, ​​leaving scents of dry hay burned.
      peppery spices and alcohol come on the scene, with a return a little rough, the fruits are on vanilla and lemon yellow, then on the cooked apple!
      with dilution:
      much creamier, honeyed, on the lemon meringue pie, with a lot of pepper spices, then dry smoke, burnt herbs again, back of cardboard, no wood, dry cardboard with a little dust, and vanilla again!
    • Finish
      pastry cream, vanilla, lemon, a little peat and swirling smoke.
      heart of almond kernel,
      bouquet of dried flowers!
      then dry wood in return.
      medium to long length.
