Hobbit Tasting note

Color
Old gold
Nose

Rauch, sehr medizinisch, Desinfektionsmittel, parfumiert, etwas Zitrus, Öl, Teer, etwas salzige Luft, äußerst mineralisch, weit im Hintergrunf Vanille und Karamell, trotz nur 48% kommt der Alkohol etwas stechend daher

Taste

sehr weich, medizinischer Rauchm Salz, Meer, Karamell, wieder Zitrusnoten, herbe Kräuter

Finish

Bildet den Geschmack nochmal ab, wird jedoch zum Ende hin cremiger, süßer, ölig

Comments

Abgesehen vom medizinischen Rauch kommt hier nicht viel. Selbst wenn man diese Art von Rauch mag, so ist er trotzdem qualitativ eher einfach gestrickt. Für mich trotz günstigen Preis keine Empfehlung. Liegt im Magen wie ein Billigschnaps.

Personally find it a slightly insipid version of the Laphroaig 10. There isn't the same brashness or complexity you get with the 10, and the mouthfeel is somewhat diminished too. Nevertheless, a good peaty treat.
