16.71 Soupçon of soot

/, Flavour Profiles, Peated/16.71 Soupçon of soot


The nose was a hillbilly honker – hay-smoked cloudy cider and beech-smoked cheese, apple skins, nutmeg and burning barns – oh, and ice cream cones for the kids. The palate had chalky textures, herbal hints, lavender and violets and tasty bittersweet flavours of apple chutney and pineapple crumble with a soupçon of soot drying the finish. The reduced nose remained curious – blackcurrant leaf and jam, toffee and Caramac sweetness, sacks of green malt in an old shack and further herbal hints of menthol and mint. The palate became sweet (pan drops) and earthy – charred lemon, tree bark, ash and pork cooked in cider.
