from a purchased sample
Nose: Vanilla - extract and frosting. Smoky with a pinch of salt and seawater dampened pebbles in honey. Melon, lemon, and some green apple. Very slight porridgy. A few floral notes. Maybe even some putty. Toast. Grassy and fermented sugar. Then there's this odd metalic note. Hmm.
Palate: Lively, with honey, sandalwood, a few whiffs of smoke, more putty, and zesty on bitter lemon rind. Stale ginger root and soft pepper. Sweet and a little drying.
Finish: Smoke (light), honey, wood, lemon zest. It's really very good. Accessible and straightforward. Dull wet wood and a delicate wax coat. Surprisingly supple and substantial. No rough edges here, and some pleasant flavoring. I like this. B/B+ (86)
