It’s been a while since I last updated the blog. Unfortunately I haven’t got many new tasting notes to write up – but did just find these jotted down on my iPad. So, without further ado, a quickfire review…
Very light aroma pre-light. Nice to the touch – a little more give than my preference, but acceptable. Neatly packed foot and applied cap. Good draw. Easy light with matches (indoors), fairly even early burn.
Good smoke production from the early draws. Slight bitterness, roasted cashews and almonds at the start – saltiness. Savoury stick. Saltiness dissipates Burn goes a little one sided.
Ash was a bit segmented – broke off unevenly, not especially solid. Dark grey and quite flaky.
Towards the end a little bit of tar build up.
