Review and Tasting

Sampled on 26/04/2014


Clear, pale golden.


Pungent bonfire smoke, toasty barley, shoe polish, notes of fibreglass resin, walnuts and lemon zest. Water exposes green walnut notes.


Very delicate honeyed sweetness perfectly balances dry smoke, mild clove spice and dry roasted nuts. Water dulls the smoky notes while enhancing nutty chocolate.


Nutmeg and mild clove spice, chocolate, delicate salty seaweed and delicate smoke.
