This powerful Swede rampages out of the glass leaving a cloud of coastal peat, seaweed, grilled lime, smoked bacon and leather, with a farmyard note developing with time in the glass.
The palate shows a little fruit in the form of pear drops and apricot jam, but peat smoke builds on the palate and grabs the attention.
Some tangy orange shows through on the finish with waves of smoke lasting on the palate. This dram leaves you in no doubt why Smögen is in such high demand.
