Description

The aroma had an immediate calming effect for all of us, like marjoram essential oil - slightly warming, citric, herbaceous and woody with sweet scented pine needles. On the palate neat it’s like a ‘croque monsieur’, boiled ham in brown grilled bread topped with grated cheese, seasoned with salt and pepper and baked in an oven. With a little dilution we get lightly peat-smoked marshmallows as well as sweet lavender and rose water on the nose, whilst the taste is now very delicate, smooth and creamy like lightly oak-smoked goat’s cheese or a bacon, brie and red onion baguette.
