Notes

The panel found a curious mix of agave, cactus flesh and turmeric at first. With a lean and resilient maltiness that included barley sugar and subsequent notes of peanut, meadowsweet, apple sourz and fizzy plums. Water gave us aromas of wet forest, chalk board, marzipan, trail mix, praline and a smattering of eucalyptus. The palate revealed sherbet, throat lozenges, tree bark, nutmeg, pear drops and mint creams. With water it softened out with juicy tannins, red fruits, soda bread, mead and buttered oatcakes. The agave sensation returned towards the end with a Mezcal-esque finish.
