Tasting Notes

"Damp wood and dried red fruits, dates and touches of thyme, as well as mush banana and a whisper of menthol. A whiff of tobacco, fermented grapes and a touch of pralines. A slight farminess as well. The palate is characterized by a sweet and malty arrival with a pleasant creamy mouthfeel, followed by a spicy, almost fizzy quality. Proper chocolate notes, as well as espresso and roasted peanut skins. Starward is one to watch."
