(bottle 297 of 750) Clear, mid golden with burnished gold highlights.

Aroma:

Light peaty smokiness, dark chocolate, hints of struck match, overripe raspberry and faint citrus zest.

Vegetal peatyness with very light smoke, hints of dark chocolate, and (as per official tasting notes) “hints of lemony-rose Turkish delight.”

Aftertaste:

Vegetal notes linger with leathery smoke and dark chocolate.
