Tasting notes

  • Nose

    Grapefruit mixed with brown sugar. A hint of charcoal smoke with baked lemons developing into richer, more pronounced tropical notes of under-ripe mango drizzled with lime juice.
  • Palate

    Old-fashioned chocolate limes. Citrus and salt blend together and further richness is delivered by papaya and kiwi. Buttered samphire lends a coastal feel.
  • Finish

    A dry, herbaceous finish lingers with wave after wave of kiln smoke.
