Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonSpiced-up mandarins and drier cinnamon. Wood influence. And darker smoke. Tastewise not strong and the smoke arrives in force not immediately but after a short while. Quite dominant on the smoke, with toffeeish aftertaste.
Craig DanielsNose: Smoke and sherry, smoked rosewater. Palate: sweet and smoky, fruity, sour cherries then rubber. Finish: smoked fruit, raspberries, ashes and roses. Comment: Not the best DE, but still pretty damn fine.
