Our tasting notes are as follows:

Color: Pale Chartreuse

Nose: Hugely buttery with plantains, mango, white grapes, barbecued white peaches, agave syrup, dehydrated apple peels, white pepper

Palate: A viscous mouthfeel delivers flavors of smoked olive oil which give way to piney and earthy notes then celery soda, lemon zest, more barbecued peaches, Himalayan pink salt, guava paste, and grilled endive

Finish: Moderate to long with abundant smoke, barbecued fruits, and returning white pepper

On the label: A hugely buttery nose offers inviting fruity notes and a suggestion of barbecue while the palate and finish deliver abundant smoke and intriguing piney and zesty notes
