Nose: fruity with a nice, slightly vegetal/grassy and meaty smokiness. Dried apricots, very ripe yellow apples, lychees, and once in a while a whiff of rubber. A touch of melted butter, oily almost, with a light floral note.
Taste: wow, full-bodied! Grassy and slightly meaty smoke, followed by a very intense basket of tastes! Melted butter again, and yellow fruit. Some slight orange zestiness here as well.
Finish: smokiness with lemongrass this time. A pinch of white pepper. Lingering for a long, long time. Slightly drying at the sides of the mouth. Great finish though!
Great stuff, with a lovely balance between smoke and yellow fruit.
25-points score: Nose: 22/23 / Taste: 23 / Finish: 22 / Balance: 23. Overall resulting in a 90/91 score.
