Natural Colour, Non Chill Filtered, 70cl at 57.1% alc./vol
Rich, with a meaty smokiness that belies its light colour. Freshly cooked ham and burning logs are joined by a soft coastal character of seaspray and stony rock pools.
Sharp and stony initially, with an intense minerality that quickly becomes sweet and rich – milky coffee, milk chocolate and spicy cinnamon gobstoppers. The spice grows, adding liquorice and stewed apple with cinnamon, along with heavy charcoal smoke.
Sweet, spicy and very long. Cinnamon-spiced chocolate slowly fades to drying apple skin.
