Tasting Notes

Nose

Orange Smarties! Very candied then comes balsa wood, dust and very high alcohol burn. Despite that, it's a little dull. Water makes it slightly musty with a note reminiscent of woollen jumpers.

Palate

Much, much better than the nose. Quite high-toned: powdered almond, chalk, grass; then the sweetness unfolds into gentle, pure apricot fruit.

Finish

Jalapeno peppers. Slightly grubby.

Comment

Not quite enough interaction between wood and spirit.
