Nose: oh yes, rather enticing because the smoke has this deep, sooty coal dust with echoes of a cold barbecue, but also a nice sourness of rice vinegar (which fades). Italian speck. Pimentón de la Vera. Burnt heather and engine oil. Chipotles and miso. Pencil lead. The savoury notes are mixed with blackberry jam and roasted apricots. Toffee coated nuts, cinnamon and chocolate. Really nice.

Mouth: oily, quite smoky again too, with meaty notes and a hint of rubber on the side. This leads to brown sugar, dark berries and hints of leather. Hints of gravel and charcoal. Still some toffee and chocolate. Some grilled pineapple in the background. Fades on coffee with hints of tobacco leafs.

Finish: medium length, really ashy, with some sherry sweetness (toffee, mulled wine), but loosing strength quite rapidly.
