Hogshead 20148 – 46%
My Tasting Notes:
Nose: Wood smoke, cough syrup, pineapple, lemon, vanilla, liquorice, hints of pepper.
Palate: Peat, pineapple, liquorice, sugar, vanilla, lemon zest and black pepper.
Finish: Not very long, sweet and smoky.
Overall: The nose and the first seconds on the palate are really nice but the flavours quickly fade away into a nondescript peaty sweetness.
Rating: 80/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
