    • Nose
      Thick peat smoke, engine oil, drying seaweed and blueberry jam. A few swirls in the glass and you are tempted by tropical fruit, citrus and berries.
    • Taste
      Very smooth oily arrival, salty and sweet at the same time with a blanket of peat smoke.
      Blueberry jam, dates, plums, black cherries. as well as a basket of tropical fruit: pineapple, mango and kiwi. There's some almond notes and a little balsamic vinegar. Drying as the liquid disappears - leaves an spicy ashy note on the tongue. This reminds me a lot of the 5th Festival Edition from 2020.
    • Finish
      Lingering ginger spice, salinity and peat smoke with berries and almonds.
