    Well, you know one, you all knew, I had always said, but the potatoes are new to me. Although they can be masked by temperature and fortunately they do not appear in the mouth, they bother me clearly. In addition, there is too much bitterness and the pronounced thin mouthfeel. Overall, unfortunately, a very weak representative of the guild. Too bad, as a North Sea coastline I would have been pleased about more quality. So the bottle is definitely closed, she looks beautiful on the shelf! ;-)
    • Nose
      Instantly malty phenolic, significantly less mineral and cesky than most big peats. After a while he seems much less phenolic, but milder and sweeter. Unfortunately, there is also a luckily not dominating muff note, which flashes from time to time. In addition, raw grated potatoes, which become increasingly stronger and displace everything else over time, especially the peat content seems to be less than usual here. It is then heated as usual mineral and the caramel content grows, the potatoes are almost disappearing. If it is really warm, it smells like the other Big Peats too. If it cools down again, the potatoes are there again immediately.
    • Taste
      He is thin at first, very thin, then he starts slowly, very minerally in the mouth, as if one would lick his lips after a day in the quarry, a peatig malty sweetness is there, but very restrained, to the rear he is easy peppery, before it develops a bitterness that reminds rather of young malt than of oak. Dark chocolate is perhaps the most likely to meet this bitter / slightly sweet combination.
    • Finish
      The finish is quite short for a smoker, overall medium in length and initially for a while emphasizes bitter, before breaking bread and starch split the mouth.
