Online tasting note for reference:
Thick heady smoke of a charcoal grill and a tobacco pipe— someone open the window. Oily baked salmon on a wooden plank, antiseptic iodine, and beef jerky; this dram has a wonderful blend of meaty and maritime notes. Given enough time teases of cherries and tangerines start to come forward.
Lovely viscous oily body with just a faint dryness near the end. The sweet and spice of rich pipe tobacco or the warm breeze of a cigar humidor come rushing forward. Not far behind are meaty maritime notes of crispy fatty salmon skin, smoked fish, and fresh oysters steaming on a coal fired grill. There are so many variations on spice, meat, smoke, and maritime in this dram— fish head soup while the restaurant is on fire, Vietnamese crab meat soup, pig blood cake. There is no escaping, and why would you want to, the charred wood and seafood.
Lingering notes of sweet charred meat and burnt driftwood.
