    A full ,smooth, very firm body.
    • Nose
      Sea spray, peat smoke. Stings the back of the nose.
    • Taste
      Peaty dryness like gunpowder tea. As the palate develops, oily, grassy, salty notes emerge.
    • Finish
      Peat fire. Warming.

    Use only a little water. It is 16 yers old and has a lot to tell. Not so suitable for a beginner. Not for gulping down, take your time.
    Pricey. E150 color additive. But worth to try.
    • Nose
      W/o water: obvious smoke. Waxy oils. Floral sweetness.
      With water: first sweet of fresh summer flowers, shoepolish.
      With water and extra time: sweetness of ripe summer fruit, banana.
    • Taste
      Full sweet arrival. Long development of more sweet and smoke.
    • Finish
      Mouth drying, smokey finish. Long, very long.
