Sutliff PS Mountain Pass
In the higher altitudes the Alps retain a strong cultural identity with agriculture and culinary delights still being vital to the economy. Mountain passes have long been the route to move commerce. This delicious Black Cavendish with a delightful custardy top note is a taste of the Alpine at its finest.
Strength: Mild to Medium
Room Note: Very Pleasant
The tin note was of a rich egg custard. It reminded me of a desert my mother use to make during the holidays. On the charring light and true light the custard flavor was right there not overpowering, but flavorful. The Black and Golden Cavendish added sweetness to the flavor profile. Mountain Pass had several relights; it may have needed a little bit more drying time. Once lit it burned cool and well without any bite. I recommend giving Mountain Pass a try and you not will be disappointed.
