    Notes from an online blind tasting
    • Nose
      Light amber

      Starts out very waxy. In addition, a light pinch of salt and sweetish, cooked fruit. Slightly tropical. Some kiwi and damp wood. Forest honey and greased leather.
      With a little time in the glass it gets more flowery. With warm chamomile tea. A bit of tobacco and a hint of lovage. Roasted aromas and sugared rhubarb.
    • Taste
      Soft, but peppery start. Then light fruit sweetness and slightly woody bitterness. Very creamy, waxy mouthfeel.
      With the second sip, something metallic and a fine fruit note towards pear, mirabelle plums. A little nutty. Behind a bit of dry pastries. Surrounded by a sour, tropical fruit taste.
    • Finish
      Medium length.
