Color
Pale gold
Nose

Heavy peat, dark chocolate, earth, ash, iodine, broth, vanilla, peach, citrus and prunes. In that order: first mainly the peat and everything that comes with it, but then getting ever fruitier.

Taste

Peat, ash, tar, chocolate, caramel, a fried sweet dough something (let's say churros), vanilla, dried apricot. Also a bit of whipped cream, which becomes stronger when adding water.

Finish

Long and warming with peat, tar, dark chocolate, mocha, dried apricot and prunes.

Comments

Blind tasting of a sample.
