A little bit of medicine, iodine and ash smoke. Therefore a lot of vanilla. Green apples and coconuts followed by more fruits. Honeyed seaweed.


Sweet. Peaty ash and seaweed seasoned with rose pepper. Followed by nougat caramel, lemons, and candyfloss. Ends with firewood and licorice.


Long. Smooth and sweet. Herbs. A bit of cold smoke.


Very good, but everything is a bit too gentle and tamed for my taste.

Score: 88 / 100
