This is a very good Keemun. It has a nice depth of flavor that ranges from a warm, yeasty baked bread kind of flavor, to a hint of earthiness and leather, and then there is this smoked, aged wood sort of flavor that you’d expect from an aged liquor. I don’t really have much experience with liquor, so, I don’t know what that would taste like, exactly, but this is what I would think it would have … like something that has been cured and smoked and aged with care.
A good, stout Keemun. Not as smoky as some I’ve tried, but then again, a bit smokier than some others… I would think that this would make a fine Keemun for those who are less familiar with some of the nuances of Keemun, to get them acquainted with the various profiles that Keemun has to offer.
