Online tasting note for reference:
Initial entry presents a hint of acetone followed by mango and gentle peat! The nose evolves into a tropical fruit salad of sorts and the mango is complemented by kiwi and apricot. With time, white pepper, sea salt, limestone, menthol and vanilla emerge and are followed by cinnamon and coal dust.
Initial entry presents a rich and dense flavour profile with a fair bit of gentle peat. The tropical fruit salad trio of mango, kiwi and apricot filter through and are complemented by green ferns, creosote, limestone, coal dust and white pepper. Late developing hints of menthol, cinnamon and sea salt also emerge.
Long and lingering on the finish, with fleeting hints of tropical fruits, peat and cinnamon intermingling along with sea salt and oak.
A rather well-balanced expression which is rather dignified and delightful. The mouthfeel is oily and drying in equal measure, displaying a great balance of both elements.
