Here's the committee bottling:
A parallel comparison of Committee and Retail variant
Starts almost smoke free with bare granite and sweet caramel. Becomes faster dry and mineral. Some life makes the whole thing again sweeter. Caramel, some damp rock, lemon zest, still little smoke. With a lot of imagination there may also be some dried fruit under the caramel. In direct comparison to the committee version he looks thin and boring. The range of flavors is extremely manageable. The whole thing is then heated a little stronger, sweeter and rounded. The mineral notes go back significantly, as well as the citrus notes, for the first time the smoke is a bit more noticeable, it is reminiscent of a tea kettle. The sweetness is getting darker and a little more fruity.
A little weak-tempered in the start, the consistency rather thin, he can taste fully convincing. Something dark Sherry fruits, from the beginning already mixed with tannins, a hint of menthol and a good dose of fir honey, all nicely integrated.
The finish is not too long, but not necessarily short. At first the menthol becomes clearer again for a brief moment, before it fades away a bit dry and ashen.
