NoseSweet aromas of caramel, mango and spices contrast with an underlying sootiness like the hearth of a cooling fire.
PalateAn immediate hit of sooty smoke belies the subtle nose but slowly dissipates giving way to sweet, caramelised mango and peach, mingling with salty, charred roast ham. A subtle hint of star anise and clove lie in the background.
FinishA fresh salinity lingers, with sweet smoke and a hint of iodine.
