Tasting Notes

Nose

Highly smoked: smoked ham, fat, the tar on the wooden walls of a smokehouse, but then the door is opened to let in a grassy fragrance. Goes very cloudy with water, then some coal tar.

Palate

Fragrant and floral (violet) then a blast of tarry rope. Good balance.

Finish

Lingering smoke.

Comment

The key, as ever is balance '
