Tasting Notes

Nose

Sweet and smoky:lemon syllabub and lanolin,then comes some soft red fruits,iris and tropical fruits which it seems to share with the previous.

Palate

Immediate smoke underpinned by a peachy sweetness. Lovely fluxing battle between dry smoke and this plush fruitiness. Needs water to open things out. Very pure and layered.

Finish

Smoke all the way.

Comment

Great balanceand intrigue in here. Well worth a look.
