Official Tasting Notes
Colour: Sun Ripened Wheat Fields.
Nose: Very spiritous with a hint of lemongrass easing out into indefinable spice that might be cardamom but could also be white pepper with just a hint of coffee.
Palate: Vanilla, ripe yellow pear and chilli flakes with gentian root and butter. Wonderfully bitter, but also rather effervescent.
Finish: Soft buttery popcorn with sherbert, honestly. For sweeter and warmer just add 2 teardrops of water.
