Taste: SpicesChocolateMaltPeat Smoke

Finish: Peat SmokeZitrusChocolateOak

Comment: Full oily mouthfeel.

Taste: A spicy hit changing to dark chocolate and then a medium level peaty smokiness (campfire) with malt - (adding water seems to take the smoke away and reveal the sherry like fruits underneath).

Finish: Long chalky smoky finish with hints of orange Turkish delight and menthol lingering.

Comment: Nice.
