The nose wafted peat smoke and smouldering beach bonfires; also malting floors, coffee grinds and hints of powdered spice – cherry and banana sweetness lifted it up. The smoke was definitely sweeter on the palate; we also got gulab jamuns and white chocolate drops; the finish provided intriguing woodiness (cigar boxes, burnt matches and old furniture in a gentleman’s club were cited). With water, the nose tossed autumn leaves and camphor wood-shavings on the bonfire and found sweet nuttiness and slightly overdone Welsh rarebit. The reduced palate was less smoky and still slightly maritime with additional notes of leather, liquorice and Ovaltine.
