Sampled on 23/12/2014
(sample batch: 9, bottle: 276, date: 2014) Crystal clear but with some very tiny particles in suspension.
Bready barley, leather and piney juniper lead a pungent nose with lavender, cut grass and herbal notes.
Full-bodied with aggressive peppery spirit but water reveals pleasing sweet doughy bread notes with generous juniper well integrated herbal complexity.
Bread continues through the finish. Overall: Characterful and rustic in style.
