Tasting Notes

"Aromas lead with crisp and clean ocean brine, followed by a dose of seaweed phenolics and Chantilly cream. On the palate, 51 brings sweet vanilla cream, seaweed, cut grass, honey, black pepper, and a hint of lemon. The mouthfeel is a bit watery with a moderate bitterness that coats the mid and upper palate. The medium length finish is fairly bitter with an unpleasant saccharin note."
