jamestulloch (1922) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 6, 2015
Bottle from Appellation Wines. Black body with a huge tan head. Nice lacing. Aroma of chocolate ice-cream, a hint of smoke, ash and peat. Flavour of chocolate orange, berries and banana bread. Medium body with a frothy mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Bold flavour with lots of complexity - one sip tastes smokey, the next - hoppy, the next - chocolately... Lovely stuff.
