Notes from a blind tasting.
The name is quite well chosen because it comes across as both Spartan and warlike.
Chemical smoke immediately after pouring, followed by light citrus notes and disinfectants, mineral notes. After a while it is a bit fruity and the smoke looks ashier, coal-fired. The disinfectant remains. When warmed up, the flames blaze up, looking hotter, plus yellow fruit compote and a little caramel.
Peat sweetness, a hint of honey and a good dash of menthol, these are the dominant aromas. The start is moderate, the mouth feel slightly thin. There is still acid on top in the second sip.
The finish is not particularly long, which is somewhat surprising, but it dries up significantly, with a slight bitterness on the palate. In the end, ashes remain on the tongue.
