Notes from a blind tasting
OK, I was in the south of the island, but it doesn't matter, it was delicious!
Heavy smoke hits me straight out of the glass, immediately pretty phenolic, with damp rock and a very delicate hint of citrus. Dark malty notes are added after a short time. After a while, peach compote is added. Warmth produces strong citrus notes and some disinfectant, but also teasing alcohol. Also floor wax and an increasingly unpleasantly realistic smell of cowshed. When a certain temperature is reached, it suddenly flattens and closes, leaving only a light smoke from coal firing.
Tingling on the tongue but moderate at the start, while being quite oily, a powerful chili catch develops while the alcohol starts to push. In addition, dark, liquid block malt with a little lemon peel. Tannins come to the rear. In the second sip, it is significantly drier from the start, and a strong citrus acidity that covers the palate develops towards the back.
In the finish it dries further, develops bitter notes, until rather sweet ash remains on the tongue for a long time. He also warms the chest area for a long time.
