Tasting Notes

Nose

Gentle and soft: green banana, coconut milk, hot gorse, honey, whipped cream. With water, there's subtle smoke and summer fruits.

Palate

Very smooth start, then lifts into dry smoke and spicy oak which balance the citric juiciness, gooseberry jam, vanilla and general fruitiness.

Finish

Light sherried notes and smoke. Gentle.

Comment

An example of superb blending skills. If this tasting is about balance then this is a perfect example, every element pulls together in harmony.
