Nose - Initially maple syrup and cherry wood. Wood moss, mushroom soup and hints of vanilla. Nutty and toast in the background.
Palate - Tobacco leaf, cherry liqueur, walnuts, wood lacquer, pencil eraser. With water some crème brûlée.
Finish - Medium-long. Cherry lozenge, woody and light hit of pepper.
Empty glass has notes of tomato vines and stock cube. Following morning sediment in bottom of glass smells like chocolate gateau cake.
Very unusual dram. Flitters between savoury and sweet notes. Challenging, but rewarding.
