Bottler: Liquid Treasures

Nose: vanilla, toffee and pleasant smoke flavors. Tar paper and ashes, banana leaves over a campfire, with a very harmonious and creamy sweetness. Marshmallows, sugar candy and some fudge, seawater behind.
Palate: Mild, surprisingly mild. The sweetness takes a back seat, but a bit of acidity comes up. Lime juice, canned mandarins and redcurrants, followed by smoked ham and mild spices, some ashes and colorful pepper.
Finish: Very long, warming and powerful, peat smoke and tar, slightly sparkling sweetness, lemonade. At the end cigar smoke and spices.
Conclusion: A really nice malt for smoke lovers inside!
