Tasting Notes

"Yes! Superbly balanced with lots of little complexities. The smoke is of the sweet, mature barbecue-esque type. There's some minerals, vanilla custard and fruity notes as well. Just nosing this is a pleasure, but drinking isn't too shabby either. A nice salty arrival, followed by seaweed, cracked black peper and hints of iodine. The smoke lingers for a long time, before finally revealing more fruits."
