3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl bottle via Secret Santa. Pours a muddy, caramel brown with some clumpy off white head. Nose is boozy, pine, spruce, raisins, oranges, malt, caramel. Flavor is sweet, piney, raisin, prune, dried orange slices, a little cognac, some red grape. Full, sticky finish. I liked the hop presence and I’d say this is a scotch ready to drink now.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle thanks to Rune and Finn. Thanks guys. Bottle drunk at home whilst waiting for some rice to boil to go with my thai red curry after a mixed day at work. Both unbelievably depressed and also so happy I will meet all my targets for the year by the first week of December. Deep brown red colour with lasting bubbly beige head. Slightly smoked aroma. More smoke and peat in the mouth. Blimey that’s quite juicy in the malts as well as some peaty smoke. Interesting beer. Some good juicy hedgerow fruits from the malts. A little prickle on the finish. But also some sweetness. Pretty decent to be honest. Good balance between sweet fruit and peaty smoke. Good. thanks guys.
