Description

Tasting note:

Nose: Crisp and maritime, with a combination of seaside bonfires and muddy peat. Sour lemons and bitter oranges provide a counterpoint, with sweet sponge-cake batter, floral notes and ground spice
giving balance.
Palate: Syrupy and sweet to start, with savoury smoke rolling in soon after – ashy and earthy, with touches of barrel-char sweetness and charcoal dryness. Floral, spicy and sweet notes develop, with cardamom and
clove joined by Sherbet Fountains, candied lemons and a hint of violets.
Finish: Long and lingering, with earthiness giving way to tropical fruit and citrusy sap.
