Tasting Notes

Colour: Fruity and biscuity. There are gristy notes with caramel and toffee sweetness and plenty of peels.

Nose:The herbs are very up front with this one. Peppermint, pine and pleasant grassy notes. Cucumber and melon round out the nose.

Taste:All the notes on the nose swim effortlessly through the palate, the mint developing sweeter notes as it goes on. Citrus zest also pops in to say hello.

Finish:A waft of smoke appears during the long finish.
