Bright copper shimmers mysteriously in the Premium Snifter, while oily and extremely tenacious "legs" pull their tracks on the glass wall and combine in slow motion with the orange-colored and lustrous distillate in the Nosingglas. Even from afar, the intense peat note is noticeable, fruity and slightly minerally adds a delicate hint of smoke. Dried grapes and berries, sweet strawberries and old mandarins are zealous, slightly smoky, creamy and oily bacon pushes into the foreground, fly ash rises from the only slightly smoldering campfire. The peat notes are more fruity and woody, bananas and peaches are released from the harmoniously matched nose. The salivation is slowly stimulated, milk chocolate and caramel are combined with toffee and roasted peanuts.
Relatively mild and fruity, the first sip flows over the tongue, abruptly begins sharpness! Black pepper, coarse sea salt and a hint of chilli heat the tip of the tongue and again massively stimulate the salivation. Burnt pieces of wood rest on the palate, ashes and charcoal finish creamy and greasy under the tongue while dried grapes and berries speak again. The smoky note increases noticeably, a campfire is stoked with old wood and a few bales of peat, again dissolves ash and settles on an oily slice of bacon. Even in the taste of the banana aroma is powerful, only gradually remain smoky and burned wood elements. With old and dried walnuts, the taste is oily in the finish.
The extreme peat and smoky notes are almost fading away, sweetly stick the last memories of raisins, peaches, bananas and strawberries on the palate. Hints of smoked beech wood rest on the tongue, once more burnt peat and minimal fly ash pushes into the foreground while at the same moment the last crumbs of milk chocolate dissolve in the mouth. Short stays creamy sweetness, then the Smokehead ends mild and discreet smoky on the palate. What remains is an oily and greasy film with the last release of raisins, bananas, caramel and chocolate.
