Tasting Notes

Nose

Intense. Rich oak. Smoky. Phenolic. Tar, liquorice. An earthy touch. Wet straw. Farmyard. A sweeter note on time. Mint toffee. A hint of walnut.

Palate

Smooth at first then dry and smoky. Quite a big whiff of smoke. Bacon Sherbety. The alcohol bite numbs the tongue.

Finish

Dry, smoky, warm.\r

Comment

A strong phenolic profile framed in solid oak. The alcohol is not totally mastered. Adding water brings out bitterness.
