Nose: Floral and citrusy nose with lemon balm, caramelised sugar, a little dark honey and agave.
Palate: Rosemary, notes of fig, dates, custard apples and peppermint.

If you've ever tried laphroaig new make spirit, its like that with a healthy dose of cactus thrown in. Smoke, earth, ash, mineral, cucumber, leather, old cellar. The only spirit that comes close, and at times surpasses Islay scotch.
