The new bottling has produced an extraordinary character. The nose is determined by peat, sherry, fried bananas with honey and black chocolate. The aromas are powerful in the taste – peat, a strong smokiness, dry cocoa, a fruity sweetness that recalls black cherries.
The Family Blend The Lineage by Alec Bradley comes into its own perfectly in this combination. The robusto’s rich, creamy aromatic blend of tobacco brings a new impetus into the fruity elements of the Scottish “water of life,” as astonishing aromas of fruit cake, together with hints of a tart chocolate pudding develop.
A well-rounded and excellently balanced interplay of aromas.
