Tasting Notes

Nose

A whack of woodsmoke and After Eight mint chocolates. There’s some cucumber and pear drop. Umeshu plum and watermelon. A sweet mushroom note lingers in the back.

Palate

Light bodied, but a little hot. Somewhat medicinal. Retronasal rubber glove aromas. Iodine and shellfish salinity. In time, toffee sweetness and pear drop. Water brings out a touch of sour cream.

Finish

Medium, ending on hot smoked salmon and green apple.

Comment

I suspect those bromophenols are working hard here. This will divide opinion.
