At first I can't find much more than intense, phenolic peat smoke. The smell reminds me a bit of "cowshed". After some time, sweet Bourbon aromas of lemon cream and peaches come through. There is also malt, lots of grain and a herbal note. The smoke fades somewhat after a few minutes but remains dominant throughout. The aroma alternates between sweet and sour impressions.
A strong start on the tongue. The smoke is also dominant in the mouth, but lets through more bourbon and sweet fruit compared to the nose. The alcohol burns sharply on the tongue, but I also think I can taste a hot note of chili. After a few seconds, the mouthfeel becomes slightly tart and acidic. There are also lemons and some vanilla.
The smoke also dominates the finish. First the feeling in the throat is sweet with caramel. The sweetness then fades relatively quickly and citrus fruits and oak are added. In addition, again the association of a herb meadow. The finish is medium long and towards the end a delicate bitterness comes through. The smoke is left alone at the end.
The smoke is integrated much better in both the nose and the mouth. The other aromas intensify and the sweetness also becomes more prominent and lingers longer in the finish. Marzipan is also added, especially in the finish.
