    It tastes and tastes fleshy with a subtle not unpleasant sulfur note. Oily in the taste. If you like the style, it's good.

    • Nose
      Italian pork ears, muscobado sugar, lime, grisly minerality, oak also slightly fleshy accents. Over time becomes herbaceous, slightly earthy and spicy with gentian and a delicate smokiness.
    • Taste
      Full, heavy onset with oily aromas, a brash minerality, earthy spices, limes, beeswax, again pork ears, oak, herbaceous accents and delicate smoke.
    • Finish
      Long, earthy and tenderly smoky.
