Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

The nose is rich and complex, featuring sweet peat, salt, citrus, fresh grass, herbs, and hints of vanilla and eucalyptus. There are also subtle farmy notes, fresh hay, marzipan, and smoke. The taste is powerful, with strong but balanced peat, alongside sour citruses, green apple peel, salt, and creamy vanilla. The finish is long, gradually drying, with lingering sweet peat, sour citrus, and a touch of tea.
