The first nose tells us this is a big, massive dram, like stepping into a room were traditional Italian spicy cured salami hangs to be matured. We also got BBQ chicken and spare ribs with a sweet syrupy, wood chip smoky marinated hickory sauce. There are also earthy notes like being in a garden shop, potting earth, fresh compost and plant feed. It does not disappoint on the palate, hot, spicy, smoky, heavily char grilled slightly burned sausages but also sweet tobacco notes. With water tarry notes, steamy tarmac being laid on a hot day, creosote soap, tropical fruit kebab and Spotted Dick, a rum and raisin steamed pudding. The taste is that of charred smoke, ashy, scorched heather and a lavender note to finish.
