Tasting Notes

Nose

Earthy. Dried mint and bayleaf with some eucalyptus, even enamel paint and hot clay. With water there’s baked apple and shoe wax but the slightly grubby earthiness remains.

Palate

A strange mix of the sweet and the bitter. High oak extracts. Moves in two directions: the intense and the bitter but and doesn’t resolve the issue.

Finish

Cacao.

Comment

Too dry and bitter for me.
