Tasting notes
Nose: At first, there’s a sour lemon note and a gentle smoke coming from a hot, burning campfire. After a few whiffs it changes slighty towards leather and tobacco and the lemons become a big bowl of tropical fruits. There’s ripe mangos, pineapple and peaches accompanied by honey, a hint of menthol and vanilla. It’s very pleasant on the nose.

Mouth: It’s sweet and sour with honey, lemons and fresh tropical fruits. The leather and tobacco notes represent the peat and resides around the edges. The oak is there, but it’s not overpowering or bitter. It shows a little astringency after a few sips.

Finish: A big burst of the tropical fruitiness together with a peppermint spicyness. The peat notes are still present and create a nice backdrop. The tropical fruits stays all the way to the end together with a pleasant oakiness. A ”funky” note shows up somewhere in the middle of the finish. There’s some hazelnuts coming through as a dusty, nutty note at the tail end.
