Tasting Notes

Nose

Watermelon, lemon pith and rind. Hot sauna wood, dry haystacks and wet woodsmoke. Coastal, with the smell of fish on the breeze.

Palate

Sweet, smoky with wood cutting through a thick texture. Apple sauce, tar and lemon notes are over-lain but a persistent smoky undcurrent.

Finish

A complex and long-lasting finish that is a combination of fizzy, earthy and spicy.

Comment

Took a while and a bit of water to open up so don't rush it.
