Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

The initial scent is open and dry. With a soft and velvety texture, offering a blend of spicy woody notes and fruit jam. A delicate smoky veil quickly emerges, followed by peat, ash, wood, and hints of dark chocolate and leather.

The taste is dense and full with woody, sweet, mineral, and smoky peaty flavours, all perfectly balanced. The finish is soft and calm, with oak, light smoky-peaty notes, and remnants of creamy sweetness. Chocolate, leather, and tobacco lingering on the palate.
