Tasting Notes

Nose

Light as rainwater. Needs time for a lint-like aroma to emerge followed by melon, oyster liquor, wet bracken and light smoke. Hint of phenols, though it's more ozone than fire. Swimming pool.

Palate

Good feel. Much sweeter than the nose and the smoke also comes through, adding another dimension, but it falls apart easily and quickly.

Finish

Bandages.

Comment

Good but pretty tired.
