Really old leather shoes, pickled plums, dark berries, tobacco leaves, dried fruits, fig jam, dates, burnt twigs and herbs, ashes, medicinal notes, truly different and very interesting. Raisins, nice mix of seaside flavours with smoke, sherried notes, and really strong genuine leather. Later toffee and creamy notes come out as well.
Nice dose of smoke, lots of medicinal flavours, brine, seawater, seaweed, fruitier pear juice, not sugary, but good level of sweetness. Alcohol level is great, light spices, very good stuff. Second chew brings light oak, barley, more medicinal notes, balance is fantastic. Nothing to put a finger on. A bit of dried herbs also. Third chew shows consistency, but a bit drier, more oaky spices, some mint joins the mix as well, along with a vague hint of peach juice, and still a nice dose of wonderfully sweet smoke.
Really warm, peppery, pear and peach juices, barley, light oaky spices, fantastic medicinal notes, and sweet smoke. Leather still at the core, with tobacco leaves lingering.
A fantastic finish, that lasted for ages after I finished my tasting.
