Compared to Dark it is significantly less smoky - and then you notice that smoke can make up for and conceal a lot.
Sponge cake, freshly sliced apple, a pine grove by the sea. Ginger cookies, honey, vanilla, mild herbs. Slightly tart and fruity at the same time. Varied.
Mild start with lots of caramel, chocolate and cocoa. Dry and with a very light smoky note. So light, it can hardly be made out and easily mistaken for dry wood. Red apple, orange biscuits, a hint of liquorice. Marzipan. Over time, the dryness increases - and the smoke note is no longer so restrained. Pine resin, dry forest soil, malt.
Dry and crisp, short finish. Mild smoke, apple wedges, milk chocolate, caramel candy. A little malt, a little sap.
