    N- Heat of warm toasted oak rises, polished, honey and highly feinty. Solvent notes of fresh paints, bubble gum oozing but well integrate with thick smogs of bourbon oak nuances. Baked peaches, tartlet, garden herbs with sweetie smokes. Earthy, ripe mango skin that evolved to strawberry compote, fruit preserves with touch of lemon juice. Quite lovely with hints of wet soil drifting. (92/23)

    P- Bold oak, phenol, honey, nutty of almond and umami seaweed broth comes at once. Spicy oak, orange liqueurs at tail. Feel light on texture, but interesting flavours. (87/21)

    F- Long, waxy, spicy, oak-y, herb infusion, mashed pears and grassy sweet. (89/22)
