Nose
Dry but fragrant smoke with touch of pot pourri. Citrus peels thrown on a bonfire. Hot embers,smoked fish and chocolate. Water increases complexity with brimstone and elastoplast.
Palate
Immediate embers/coal dust. A burst of sweetness,then it dries,though it flows well revealing a slight oiliness in time along with pepper.
Finish
Clean and peaty.
Comment
An effusively phenolic smouldering hulk. Recommended.

Nose
Smoky. Bonfire on a wet day. A hint of smoked sausage. The smoky notes develop together with a floral scent. Hyacinth. A mineral touch. Wet pebbles. Then opening on a nutty note. With water,a sour touch.
Palate
Smooth at first but not for long. A big spicy explosion. Dry soot. Chewy feel. Water brings in fresh mint and liquorice but also some astringency.
Finish
Dry, smoky.
Comment
The nose is enticing but the palate does not follow.
