A busy nose to start with – white flowers, jammy (quince and bramble), vanilla, Chinese spices and heather honey. Then, slightly savoury, salty, malty with a hint of peat. At full strength it was a spicy and hot to taste. Cloves, melon and just-ripe fruits with slightly bitter fresh wood and a suggestion of wine making for a clean and interesting taste. With water it’s gentler. Aromas take us to hot summer afternoons in a farmer’s field with milk chocolate, barley sugars, ripe bananas and melon. With time the aromas develop into sauna wood. The taste is mellower. It’s still fruity and sweet, but slightly creamy with gentler spices, some wine and a slightly salty tang. The finish was short but satisfying.
