Tasting note: Flawless bright amber gold. Initial inspection detects thick choc-fudge and elastoplast followed by hints of menthol tobacco. Second pass releases beeswax, lanolin and cocoa laced malt. Further aeration accents dark chocolate with hints of dried fig and cough lozenge. Outstanding balance; the sheer purity of the distillate shines through. Creamy textured, delicately peppery, sooty-yet-fruity delivery followed by an impossibly wound up, oily yet fresh, salty, tangy, smoked-lemon-mousse finale that’s hard to get your head around. Prolonged aftertaste with hints of struck match, menthol tobacco, cocoa and dried fruits in the fade. Brilliant. Non chill-filtered. 48% Alc./Vol.
