Nose : Both tentative and warm: mellow, rounded and well-balanced. Peaty with the smoked fragrance of a fire just gone out, quickly giving way to a scented candle infused with wax and dried herbs. Notes of raisin cake turn malty with accents of grilled coconut, honey and lemon zest underpinned by a hint of wood fire smoke. Notes of caramel and frangipani gradually unveil themselves, counter-balanced by more intense notes of peat. Adding water unleashes the aromas, revealing the scent of jam and creamy caramel with more intense notes of mint, herbs and scented bath salts, with a less pronounced smoky element._x000D_
Palate : Powerful, cask strength. The attack is mellow like a syrup, then spicy, dry and slightly charcoal-inspired. Fresh aromas of cacao, dark chocolate truffles, orange zest and honeyed caramel cake rise over notes of wood fire smoke and ripe red berries in the background. The addition of water ushers in a more mellow, lighter flavour, less sweet and more mineral with refreshing accents of vanilla and pine resin._x000D_
Overall : Mid to long and very warm, spicy too, with the freshness of the herbs paired with dark chocolate, gourmand tannins and a minty backdrop. A splash of water prolongs and softens the blend. A gentle minty scent with notes of liquorice and roasted coffee beans in the finish._x000D_
