    Could the Tasmanian devil have drawn his strength from there?
    the 12th and 14th had strongly seduced me, so I jumped on it, knowing that the peat comes from Scotland without knowing more:
    nose:
    cold maritime peat and exotic fruits, leather, a certain vegetal side, fresh, lime, the peat returns to the gas strip, the fruits very candied, very sweet
    return to the usual fishing port with seaweed, spray, crates of fish
    mouth:
    creamy spices, toasted caramel, more than cooked, pastry cream, pine resin, sticky sap, soaked wood, ash at this time, cold;
    the citrus fruits come back, on the mango, a little cooked pineapple juice, the cooked lime, the spicy peat which leaves on a grassy return on the stems and the wilted flowers, with a zest of tar
    final:
    the most with strong caramel, the extract in fact, candied fruits on citrus and exotic fruits, caramelized sugar, very pleasant encaustic here, the always oily and heavy peat, sublime and changeable of the usual Islay .
