Tasting Notes

"In one sentence, this is a raw oyster that sat over an open wood fire. Briny smoky with wet granite rocks waft from the glass freely. The palate quickly reveals an ashy and slightly metallic flavor with faint bitter orange and herbal notes. The finish has more smoke, is not very long and has a very noticeable wood grain warmth."
