Review and Tasting

Sampled on 24/01/2018


(sample bottle batch 00-0003, bot No. 077/200) Crystal clear.


Reminiscent of smoked cream-of-soda with subtle bacon notes and vegetal peppery spice.


Dry. Like wood smoked tequila but more subtle and with a quite different smokiness to mezcal. Earthy smoke with black pepper spice and creamy mouthfeel.


Long elegant smoky finish with light white pepper spice, earthy notes and faint vanilla.


A very interesting spirit with which to introduce smoky notes to cocktails – cleaner and more elegant than mezcal, subtler than Islay whisky and more interesting than smoked vodka.
