Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonQuite some wood in here. Fresh plank from the saw house. Well, perhaps not, but almost. With some honey poured over it perhaps. Tastewise not on the wood, rounder than expected, should not be high in ABV. Still honeyed. Perhaps with a slightly perfumed finish, somewhat flowery. Quite enjoyable taste here, a bit of character, some smoke in the aftertaste also.
Krishna NukalaSmoke, salty coastal notes.very interesting- Islay like nose! A Brora or a Talisker.Brilliant palate! Loads of honey. An explosion on palate- like Talisker- Everlasting smoky and dessert like finish (Blind tasting notes of MMA 2013)
