Tasting Notes:
Tasting Notes by Tim F

Nose:  Amazingly fruity.  Freshly-soaked barley with brown sugar notes and summer fruits.  Develops damson, plum and a faint menthol hint, with some earthiness and a whiff of brine. Becomes more leafy when water is added.

Palate:  Barley sugar and burning wood.  Creosote and treacle toffee. Then rosehip and tingling peppery spices.  Liquorice and a pleasant doughiness.  More assertive and savoury than the nose suggested, but mellows with a drop of water.

Finish:  Lingering liquorice and hot pepper spices.  The fruit creeps in alongside faint hints of woodsmoke and varnish.

Comment:  Fresh, youthful and headstrong, this packs a punch at full strength, but becomes very approachable with the addition of a few drops of water.
