Tasting Notes

Nose

Intense. Floral and woody. Sandalwood. Fading rose. Sour fruit. Stewed rhubarb. Varnished wood.

Palate

Crisp. Astringent. Wood is dominating. Then a sweet note of marshmallow and crystallised violet. Some ginger.

Finish

Quite short. Dry.

Comment

Wood speaks up. In an elegant way though.
