Appearance:

(sample bottle Lot: PEC-121) Crystal clear.

Aroma:

Wonderfully aromatic, herbal lightly smoky and floral with salami, black pudding, basil, salty sea air, lemon grass, orchard fruit and English parsley sauce.

Taste:

Smoky roast chicken skin, smoked paprika, sea salt, coal dust and herbal notes. Very faint lavender and honeyed sweetness.

Aftertaste:

Lingering citrus acidity, chicken stock, herbs and peppery spice.

Overall:

Described as being slightly scotch whisky-like and it is. Lightly smoky and meaty with herbal and floral notes.
