Tasting Notes

Nose

Wet grass, some draff then light scented woodsmoke and red apples. Grows in complexity with water: dry spices then a hint of date and smoke holding itself above it all. Complex.

Palate

Smoky start then a sweet thick centre. Chocolate and nuts. Little hint of sandalwood to the finish.Blond tobacco, chocolate and lots of nutmeg. With water the tobacco really comes through.

Finish

Long, complex lightly spicy.

Comment

Perfect balance. Elegant. A belter.
