Nose: My nose is greeted with a very rich and deep sweetness. A pine forest on fire and then soaked in a rain of sherry and honey. Hints of sea salt. A touch oaky in character.
Taste: Full bodied, rich and quite green on the palate. Mint and menthol. Deep, earthy wood smoke. Dried fruits.
Finish: Medium long finish. More green grass than herbs now. It feels less peaty on the finish, more fruity and fresh.
Comments: Solid quality as always from Smögen.
