    taste

    A light-bodied, lively cup with pronounced notes of burnt wood and a suave smokiness enveloping the palate completely from the first sip. These flavours define the character of the cup, interrupted briefly by a mild sweetness of green apples complemented by a furtive marine note which comes through at the end. A sweet nuttiness comes through in the aftertaste.
