73
Nose
Delicate peat and heavy spirit. Wet wool and more vanilla.
Palate
Smoke, a dying BBQ, red cherry cola, rooibos tea, mint leaves and lime juice.
Finish
Coal dust and lime juice; almost Mezcal like.
Comment
Like a smoked margarita.

Nose
Resinous, perfumy. Sun warmed pine needles. Vetiver. Quite an unusual aromatic profile. Enticing though. Charcoaled beef. Thyme.
Palate
Silky. Malty and fruity. Pears poached in a cinnamon syrup. Barley wine. A hint of green apples.
Finish
Sweet and crisp, soothing on a delicate nutty aftertaste.
Comment
A surprising balsamic profile. I was more intrigued by the nose than the palate. I would avoid water.
