Nose
Medicinal. Earthy. Peaty. Fishnets. Olive oil.
Palate
Quite oily. Sweet maltiness hovered by a smoky veil.Sherbety. Drying on spices (cubèbe pepper). Cough medicine (tar losanges).A floral touch.
Finish
Dry,sooty.
Comment
Another marine fellow. Straightforward,muscular but not assertive. Invigorating.

Nose
Tar evolves into smokeyness, meanwhile a sequence of fruitcake, honey and crème brûlée step into the spotlight.
Palate
Richness laced with smokeyness that evolves into toastyness,with waves of malty,and creamy sweet vanilla notes, then lemon zest freshness.
Finish
Smokey,creamy, oakey dryness with lemon zest garnish.
Comment
Bold but balanced.
