The smoke is unmistakable in type, but comes very mild and elegant as a welcome and remains as a steady companion. Very intense honey, sea salt, algae, vanilla, macadamia, soy sauce, green apple, pickled pear, some rice pudding. Great nose, you always want to keep your nose in the glass. The 48% offer strength, but are a little bit too present in the nose.
An interesting interplay. First, honey cake, extremely sweet. Then only the smoke, at the same time fresh and tingling. Then a little pleasant bitterness and then again powerfully sweet.
You can taste honey, vanilla, very strong salt, some pepper, very spicy. In the background something fruity tree fruit.
Medium. First bitter, spicy. The Laphi smoke is there the whole time, is very very pleasant as a "red carpet" on the tongue. The longer you wait, the sweeter and more pleasant the finish. Always powerful, but unfortunately quite suddenly gone.
