Summary: Lapsang souchong, grey, electric smoke overwhelms the fruit, unfortunately.
Free sample with my order.
Dry: Dark. Light smoky, light toasted wood.
Wet: Very dark grey smoke; some clay.
5s – Light bronze. Dried fruit. Light smoke. Thick syrupy texture. The fruit combined with the smoke gives it as upbeat electric/chalky taste. 82/100
10s – Light bronze. More smoky, and of the dark grey kind. The fruit is soft and sweet. It is not raisin, it is more like subdued mango. The fruit goes to the roof of the mouth. My mouth is left with the grey smoky taste.
15s – Lapsang Souchong, pine like smokiness (Twinings teabag version) Gives a nice sweetness in the throat on the swallow.
Had some Camembert.
30s – Med bronze – Mild bitterness and astringency.
~40s – Med bronze. Good mix of fruit and smoke with a good texture.
45s – Med bronze. Aroma is slightly smoky Mild flavour now.
60s – Light bronze. Mild fruit and smoky End of session.
Flavors: Mango, Smoke
