Previous Smokeheads I've tried I've found a bit underwhelming, this was quite nice and my favourit so far.
Thanks to ronnholt for the sample.
Peaty. Islay peaty.
Rubber, salt, mineral.
Then sweet, metalic, dark fruits with a little minty twist.
Some young vibrant wood, it's clean and fresh.
From a distance it reminds me of a nice and rich Bordeaux.
Very well integrated alc. Doesn't feel like 48%
Very much in line with what you would expect from the nose.
Of course it's peaty, but the sweetness is making it more mellow.
Again,pretty rubbery and salty. Lots of dry sherry.
Noticable but slow and controlled spice building up.
Quite long. Passed medium.
Smoked meat. Fruity sweet.
A little drying at the end.
