Tasting Notes

Nose

Direct and phenolic. Frying bacon fat, cabbage, silage, fish boxes, damp coal bunker. Some lifted citric notes, camomile. Smoke.

Palate

Young with real power and attack. The smoke appears from half way but is balanced by a sweet centre. Oily, rich, even salty (oops!).

Finish

Smoky bacon, camomile, clove.

Comment

A young cracker. Don't pass this up.
