Tasting Notes: By Christian Simunic

 

Nose: Wonderful smoky flavor. Intensive smoked meat. (Bacon / Ham)? There are also hints of salt, herbs and iodine.

Palate: Smoke and meat dominates at the beginning, then sweetess and herbal aromas are coming through. Pleasant on the tongue.

Finish: The finish is medium-long. Smoke, cold ash, mixed with oak and spice.

Conclusion: Extermely good, and high quality whisky!! Sadly it's quite expensive for a 3 year old whisky!
