Review and Tasting

Sampled on 01/09/2009


(bottle number 343 of a total production of 473 bottles.)


Smoky and peaty but yet strangely sweet and fruity with hints of apricot and lemon zest.


The palate is also honeyed, almost waxy with fresh smoke from a stable fire blowing over the whole experience.


Easier than the nose might suggest.
