"Surprisingly herbal and green, almost like mezcal. Balanced vegetal peat, with relatively subtle smoke and notes of banana mush. Given time, it displays a quite intense vanilla sweetness. The palate is brazen, but settles down after a little whill. Chock full of thick, dense smoke, with whiffs of rubber and char, but there's a caramel sweetness as well, with plenty of vanilla and a whisper of lemon."
