    Very nice Coleburn with interesting, own notes, the noticeable quince, pear and ash in the finish are the highlight for me.
    • Nose
      Quince, pear pear, lemon peel, interesting, light notes with fruits you do not always have, Earl Gray tea, ginger, camphor, light malt, light herbal honey
    • Taste
      Beautiful salt notes combine with grapefruit, more white than pink, pear, quince, lemon peel, Earl Gray tea, rosemary and camphor, malty malt
