Tasting Notes

Nose

Intense and youthful herbal coffee with smoked walnut, earth and rye-like spice. A ‘raw cask’ feel but the alcohol is well integrated. Water brings out some citrus notes.

Palate

Soft but the edgy, herbal sherry arrives quickly. Malt, liquorice, walnuts follow. Water makes it a little homogenous but pleasantly juicy. \n

Finish

Eye wateringly alcoholic and herbal with a lingering spicy, rye-like character. Water softens and lengthens. \n

Comment

Raw and wild unless you add water! Enjoyable and memorable.
