Notes

The initial nose had plenty of coal tar, new leather and paraffin but, given a little time, sweeter softer aromas appeared like Key lime mousse, coconut blancmange and roasted hazelnut yoghurt. On the palate an intense sweet, ashy flavour at first followed by burning incense and grilled shrimps marinated in tequila and citrus juice. Water released the scent of menthol cigarettes, wood ash and a bowl of sweet and salted bacon porridge. The taste now has a much better balance of a lovely creamy sweetness entwined with a sweet teasing smoke – fairly simple but nevertheless very enjoyable indeed.
