    Colour:
    Full gold
    Nose:
    Tons of Cuban tobacco leaves! What a start with full spice, burning peat fire and a delicious sweetness of caramel and honey. In addition, leather, wax, "farmy notes" and tingling salt. But also ash and earthy-dull notes are there ... and still fruity; Orange peels, lemons, grapefruit, vanilla and again smoke and peat and wet hay - wow!
    Taste:
    Full spice, very spicy and ingenious! Salt, pepper, wood, now dark fruity notes of elderberry and plums. Again tons of tobacco, smoke, ashes, wet coal, iodine, honey and sweet corn - a high-end feel-good program with ultra-hot spice!
    Finish:
    Very long - spicy, sweet, smoky-peaty, woody-dry and just awesome. Dark fruit combined with delicious coffee and mocha, as well as leather and damp earth in a never-ending duration.

    A superb example of an intense, complex and very peaty Glen Garioch, on an aromatic, farmy peat smoke ..
