Our tasting notes are as follows:
Color: Golden honey
Nose: Black peppercorns, chipotle peppers, quite gamey, spicy ginger, pepperoncini, subtle lavender, subtle sea spray
Palate: Wonderfully oily texture with abundant char, roasted game, raisin bread sweetness, and walnut oil
Finish: Moderate with sweet peat, salted caramel, fresh cracked black pepper and, interestingly, dried blueberries
On the label: This peat monster hides beneath a bed of lavender flowers and burnt sticks - oily and soft but with a darkness lurking just beneath the surface
