Tasting notes

  • Nose

    Peat, antiseptic, a little iodine. Fruit and florals as well; pineapple, under-ripe banana, violets and cracked black pepper. With water, there’s vanilla, applesauce and some dried lemon peel.
  • Palate

    Full-bodied with well-integrated peat. Heaps of aromatic grapefruit, honeydew melon, ginger, hoppy bitterness, plumes of firewood smoke, dark chocolate and oak chips.
  • Finish

    More exotic flavours await; the ashes from a bonfire is accompanied by coconut and banana yoghurt.
