Comment: Another great outdoors dram to pep the spirits up.
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.
