?Very intriguing. Soft peat, a touch of camphor, beeswax and rain soaked soil. Beautiful balance and complexity. With water, a little milk chocolate, some floral soap and orange blossom joins the party. Sensational.
Palate
?Wonderfully integrated peat, soft fruits, Manuka honey a waxy undertone, drying oak and slight rancio notes.

?An old leather armchair, boot polish, damp turned earth. A little scented soap, accacia honey. A sweet peat note. Oiled paper used to wrap chocolate. A little grain, sweet barley sugar cordial.
Palate
?Waxed mango skins, gentle peat, apple boxes. A lovely herbal edge, honey roast almonds and cane sugar.
Finish
?Cinder toffee sweetness with oak spices coming through.
Comment
?Such poise and grace.
