Tasting Notes

Nose

A sulphur/rubber note, mixed with light smokiness unreduced. With water comes a decidedly jaunty, maritime air with lovely soft grain behind.

Palate

Soft and clean building into a vinous, Fino sherry quality. Soft, juicy grain appears mid-palate while smoke wreathes itself about. Good feel.

Finish

Smoke. Little short.

Comment

Balances all its elements very well. One to work on.
