Spent almost 30 minutes just nosing.
The finish is exceptionally lipsmacking.
First off after pouring there is light smoke with a twist of peat to it.
Not young agressive peat, but rather dignified in it's presence. Not sure if this diminish over time, or if it just was the plethora of other aromas that made me push it to the back of my mind.
You can tell there is some age to it.
Every time I put my nose in it I seemed to pick up something new. Just to have a hard time picking it up again.
There's apples, there's lemon. There's salt, there's pure soil. There's leather and there's wood.
One note I managed to find the sweet spot to detect was that of "Romeo y Julieta" cigar wrapper.
One of my favourit cigar brands, mild but full of flavour.
Sofisticated complex is what it is.
Arrives in a cloud of smoke.
A blast of salty liqorice and asphalt.
Going into a citric fruityness.
Build up of peppery spice with a dry ash note.
Neat it has just the right punch for its richness.
Definetely long. Spicy warmth clinging for some time.
Most prominent to me is salty hickory smoked bacon with a sweet dark berry jam.
