Straw - bright gold.
Immediately a very well-known flavor profile. First thought: Lagavulin 12y CS from the annual limited edition.
Sooty! Beach, sea, rotting algae - all this is meant positively. Citrus fruit, astringent. Above all lies a balanced, sweetish aromatic smoke.
Sweet - BOOM - smoke with full force like standing by the campfire and the wind is turning. Sweet again. Red dried fruits ?! The smoke and taste radiates heat, spice, even a hint of chilli. hot!
Long finish. The sweetish smoke remains. But also a certain bitter bitterness spreads on the palate. About European oak?
The last drop in the glass shows in the aroma after some time the finest smoked bacon flavor!
Conclusion: Horny whisky! A little bit of pride to have recognized the distillery. PX barrel I would not have come up with it.
