Sampled on 07/08/2012

Appearance

(bottle 297 of 750) Clear, mid golden with burnished gold highlights.

Aroma

Light peaty smokiness, dark chocolate, hints of struck match, overripe raspberry and faint citrus zest.

Taste

Vegetal peatyness with very light smoke, hints of dark chocolate, and (as per official tasting notes) “hints of lemony-rose Turkish delight.”

Aftertaste

Vegetal notes linger with leathery smoke and dark chocolate.
