sweet and peaty. menthol and eucalyptus seem to be the trademark of paul john.there is quite some oak but still ok.
earth and clay, rotting leaves.
water adds some citrus and pine sap.
very good, I think I am becoming a fan of this brand.
a wonderful balance between sweetness, smoke and freshness from the menthol and eucalyptus.
this barrel is less laphroaigy than the others I could taste but it is quite as excellent
long, perhaps a tad too sweet
