Nose: Floral and sweet with a touch of honey, vanilla and sweet liquorice. There’s a note of fresh garden soil and a hint of seaweed in the background.
Mouth: Lemon, vanilla and honey. Nice and friendly. Slightly spicy on second sip with the oak becoming more present. The sweet liquorice is still in the mix.
Finish: Vanilla, honey sweetness and fresh oak with a hint of coconut. Not very complex but nice throughout all steps.
