Supplier Tasting Notes

Aroma - Vanilla pod with wisps of light peat smoke and cured meats. aromas of cranberry, raspberry, and strawberries with hints of lemon sherbet and undertones of plum skin.

Taste - Hints of pepper followed by mixed spice, raspberry, blackcurrant, and a subtle hint of chocolate. Flavours of beeswax and ash come to the fore with a slight undertone of fresh orange.

Finish - Long; summer fruits evolve into smoky bonfire embers.
