    Nose: First is the smoke. Wet rocks. Some vanilla is there together with a slice of pineapple. Very active.

    Body: Slides along smoothly, medium weight. It stands just before the border of creamyness.

    Taste: Warm fruit: oranges, pinapple and a tiny portion of apples. The sweetness of that combines nicely with earthy smoke. At the end I get a tiny bit of unprocessed salt before the pepper starts to dominate until the end of the finish.

    Finish: Peppers galore, medium length.

    Verdict: Solid malt, where the nose beats taste in complexity. Give it some time in your mouth to really appreciate it's balanced taste and be rewarded with that "volcanic" finish.
