Nose
Grassy and smoky. Bonfire on a wet day. Damp straw. Bog myrtle. Wet sand and shells. In time, vanilla swirls up with lemonade to bring in a sweet touch. With water, freshly squeezed lemon.
Palate
Sweet and crisp. Lemon sherbet, hints of lemon grass. The smoke keeps mainly backstage.
Finish
Lingering, soothing on marzipan.
Comment
A wonderful freshener on a warm summer day, citrussy and smokier than phenolic.

Nose
Initially closed then this marine character wakes up. Damp embers, bracken, samphire. A citrus edge lurks after a while.
Palate
The smoke comes at the end after citrus sweets, lemon drops and orange sherberts.
Finish
Long with lemon drizzle cake.
Comment
Another great outdoors dram to pep the spirits up.
