Natural colour and non chill filtered
Nose: Smoked banana and pear drift into hints of rye bread, sweet vanilla toffee and the gentlest breeze of aniseed. With a splash of water, citrusy lemon and lime make course through the senses, while refreshing notes of sherbet and sweet pastry come to the fore.
Palate: A spicy mouthfeels hoists up and ignites a blunderbuss of fruity flavours, such as melon and kiwi. An armada of aniseed appears, tailed by notes of smoked toffee and a distant hint of sourdough biscuits.
Finish: Finally, the long finish lingers, leaving seaspray, brazil buts and faint smoke listing on the palate.
