Tasting Notes

"Smoke is evident on the nose alongside the expected floral purity, accompanied by rich toffee and spiced apples. The palate is dominated by sherry and smoked oak. Rhubarb, strawberries, walnuts, and a touch of spearmint all dance atop a rich and oily canvas. Oak, smoke, and fresh herbs lead a long, lingering finish. "
