Tasting notes
Taster   Christopher Coates
Nose: Wonderful wood smoke aromas, with barbequed pineapple and apples, pear drop and first-aid box aromas of Band-Aids and iodine. A bit of crispy bacon.
Palate: Quite light and sprightly, those medicinal notes are up front with more oak-smoked orchard and tropical fruits. Menthol and eucalyptus. Plenty of fresh ‘green’ notes of cucumber water, green apple and celery.
Finish: The wood smoke fades out, leaving those ‘green’ notes and a little menthol as well.
Comment: Very spirit forward, and delicate once the smoke fades.
Taster   Phoebe Calver
Nose: Initially fresh peat smoke, with a mossy edge that hovers into medicinal. It moves into bonfire smoke, then to barbequed pineapple slices, peaches in syrup, and green apple skin.
Palate: The bonfire smoke remains but doesn’t overpower, giving way to more of the tropical fruit sweetness, syrup-covered peaches and a prickle of menthol warmth too.
Finish: This lingers, but not unpleasantly, leaving sweet bonfire and menthol freshness.
Comment: Both intense and delicate. Everything seems to play very nicely.
