Tasting Notes

Nose

Grassy and smoky. Bonfire on a wet day. Damp straw. Bog myrtle. Wet sand\rand shells. In time, vanilla swirls up with lemonade to bring in a sweet touch. With water, freshly squeezed lemon.

Palate

Sweet and crisp. Lemon sherbet, hints of lemon grass. The smoke keeps\rmainly backstage.

Finish

Lingering, soothing on marzipan.

Comment

A wonderful freshener on a warm summer day, citrussy and smokier\rthan phenolic.
