    Notes von der SMWS Website: https://smws.eu/sea-buckthorn-tea-with-honey/

    Ausgabepreis März 2021: 92,10€

    "An amazing deep mahogany colour! This was matured in a cask using staves that were air dried for 18 months, then heavily toasted and charred to #2. The aroma was that of Acacia honey on slices of buttered toasted malt loaf next to simmering red currants almost ready to be filled into jars for jelly. On the palate, full roasted oak and coffee flavours with hints of molasses and a slightly bitter turmeric finish. Diluted – rain smells so appealing after a long period of dry weather, earthy, dunnage warehouse and floral notes of jasmine appeared, and the taste was that of hot cross buns, strawberry jam and sea buckthorn tea with honey and cinnamon. This malt was made from a six row barley variety known as Alba. Were talking very long fermentation here too. Three batches of wash were combined prior to distillation, each having between 9 to 13 days of fermentation!"
