Tasting Notes

Nose: A forward nose, with quite some prickle. A pungent, distinctive and unusual smoky-meaty top note. Pork chops on a hickory-chip barbecue slathered in chipotle sauce. Below this, the familiar Lagavulin linseed oil, and more fragrant smoke. Water brings up much more, increasingly perfumed wood smoke. 

Palate: At natural strength, really smooth and rich in texture and immediately sweet-savoury in taste, then quickly more and more smoky and warming, as spicy waves of barbecue hickory wood smoke sweep over the palate to reveal a growing smoke-dried Jalapeno pepper heat. Water softens the texture and dulls the heat; still sweet overall, but the fire is subdued now. 

Finish: Long, smoky and drying, as more than a little of that chilli heat lingers with the smoke in a pleasing and fiercely warming finale. Similar but lighter with water.
