TASTING NOTES - Flóki Single Malt Sheep Dung Smoked


Very unique since the beginning, and not in the best way: truly awkward vegetable notes of cucumber, celery and green tomato. This is sided by a rather strange smoky character, a very rough and animal one, like some unprocessed leathers. Alcohol is quite evident, reaching the nose since the beginning.


Though sharp and not truly integrated, alcohol is still better than during the olfactory fruition. Aromas and tastes are still unique, with a lightly peated note paired with some herbal, resinated balsamic wood ones.


Medium duration, again not the most elegant and refines, neither an enjoyable experience.

Flóki Single Malt Sheep Dung Smoked is overall a very adventurous experiment, providing a rather unique experience in terms of awkward aromas and tastes. In addition to that, alcohol seems to be quite rough on the nose, something that can not be treated as a true experiment.
