Review and Tasting

Sampled on 04/04/2013

Appearance

Clear, golden amber.

Aroma

New leather, vanilla, vegetal peat and toasted coconut with light menthol, orange zest and cedar wood. Water releases more spicy wood and vanilla custard.

Taste

Salty, leathery lemon and grapefruit zest with vegetal peat and black pepper woody spice. As with the nose, water releases vanilla custard with light nuttiness.

Aftertaste

Salt and pepper vegetal note - think Chinese restaurant crispy seaweed with a touch of nuttiness and lingering peat.
