Sampled on 16/08/2015
(sample bottle Lot: PEC-121) Crystal clear.
Wonderfully aromatic, herbal lightly smoky and floral with salami, black pudding, basil, salty sea air, lemon grass, orchard fruit and English parsley sauce.
Smoky roast chicken skin, smoked paprika, sea salt, coal dust and herbal notes. Very faint lavender and honeyed sweetness.
Lingering citrus acidity, chicken stock, herbs and peppery spice.
Described as being slightly scotch whisky-like and it is. Lightly smoky and meaty with herbal and floral notes.
