General description

B3. Surprisingly delicate. The nose is built perfectly - ideally balanced but still vibrant, interesting. The palate however feels bit disappointing and does not fully deliver. It is diluted too much. Finish is long, but pretty straight forward.


peach, apple, pineapple, wet sand, malty, chocolate, peaty, smoky, soft, juicy, herbal, citrusy


Oily, delicate, smooth, balanced. Some sweetness and sourness, more bitterness. Malty, fruity, peach, apple, smoke, earth, tar, mineral, wet soil, herbal, peppery, ginger, grapefruit, lemon zest


Rather long, but bit diluted. Herbs, citruses and ginger dominate.
