5 Months finishing in first fill Palo Cortado Butt
Dist: Sept 2011 Btl: 2022
Tasted: Oct 2022
The nose opens with a superb intensity of herbal peat, menthol, iodine and smoke. Beneath sits some subtle herbal dried fruit, tar and aromatic wood spices. With time a touch of lime conserve, cinnamon, salt and green peppercorn emerges.

The palate opens with the sweet dried grapey fruit, warm, duty tannin, medicinal peat. Iodine, charcoal, tobacco and fish ils. The middle shows some slightly darker fruit, green pepper, capsicum and oily peat. Masked but herbal peat finish with sweet barley, honey and charcoal dust.

Water brings forward the Palo Cortado notes and lessens the peat impact. More citrus and herbal tinged smoke now. The palate is softer and smokier with a little more dry tannins. A little less complex but oilier and rounder. Lovely, long, honeyed finish with the silky dried fruit returning and lingering coffee and tobacco.
