Tasting Notes

Nose

Ashy, smoky and lemony. Seaweed, apple, mint and tea tree oil. Intense, snarling and complex.

Palate

Not quite the assault I'd expected but delicious all the same. Lots of sweetness, tea tree, ash and a vegetal/autumn leaf flavour.

Finish

Smoked meats and a persistent seaweed.

Comment

For all its chest-beating, smoking-gun aroma, the palate is softer and more approachable. Compelling.
