Palate: Coffee, licorice, barrel char, coffee grounds and slow-burning tobacco leaf. The surprising volume is expressive, almost excessive. Dynamic, rich and firm. Only an occasional whisper of elusive peat. Hints of candied licorice on the finish. A subtle sophisticated bitterness quickly gives way to more integrated, medicinal notes of camphor and eucalyptus. Malted barley notes as the finish fades out.
