Tasting Notes

Colour: Fairly ripe straw

Nose: Powerful, oily peat, dark chocolate, smoked fish, hints of seaweed, and a curious, sharp herbal note. Waves of spicy, black pepper. Adding a little bit of water brings out creamy coffee, smoked fudge and pine resin.

Palate: Peppery mouthfeel is followed by a crescendo of rich flavours. Treacle toffee, Turkish coffee, smoky bacon and lots of dark chocolate. This is followed by a grand crescendo of peach, stone fruit, hickory wood, clove oil and a suggestion of black olives

Finish: Black olives, followed by clove, tar, and more toffee.
