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 hardly any 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 more rounded. The mineral notes go down significantly, as do the citrus notes, for the first time the smoke is slightly more noticeable, it reminds us of a tea cooker. The sweetness is getting darker and a little more fruity.
A little weak-tempered in the start, the consistency rather thin, he can fully convince taste. Something dark Sherry fruits, from the beginning already mixed with tannins, a hint of menthol and a good dose of fir honey, everything integrated nicely.
The finish is not too long, but not necessarily short. At first the menthol becomes clearer again for a moment, before it fades away a bit dry and ashen.
