Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Tim F

    Nose: Citrus and sweetness initially, with lemon juice, orange zest, honey and lemon curd.  The phenols are restrained, lurking in the background as coal and wet burnt wood.  With time more sooty notes emerge, alongside grapefruit, tangerine peel and faint medicine cabinet hints.

    Palate:  A soft entry at first, with honey and lemon from the nose and a hint of brine.  Then a rush of spongecake accompanies the tangerine and grapefruit, before the coal finally emerges mid-palate, setlling onto the tastebuds for a long, but balanced peaty, smokey rumble.

    Finish:  Long, becoming warm.  Coal and pepper with some delicious flashes of honey and marmalade.

    Comment:  Quite worryingly drinkable and extremely more-ish.  The balance is faultless, with each flavour element getting its moment in the limelight before dropping back into the ensemble.  An absolutely delightful dram.
