Tasting Notes

Nose

Charcoal smoke and oakwood smoked salmon, some capsicum and liquorice stick. Lingonberry sauce and a whiff of something juniper-like. Charred venison on the barbeque. With water come orange and clove.

Palate

Medium bodied. Full-on Fisherman’s Friend lozenge up front; a delightfully medicinal character. Water brings out pear drop and physalis, with a hint of cranberry. In time, a paper-like element.

Finish

Medium length. The lozenge-like character persists.

Comment

A touch hot, but water tames it.
