Watermelon and red apples, alongside hints of dark berries. Orange zest with cinnamon. Wood smoke, motor oil and diesel, followed by vanilla, caramel chocolate and creamy oak.


Rather sweet with creamy smoke. Ripe red apples, lemon zest, dark chocolate and a sip of honeyed espresso. A bit peppery. Herbs and a few slices of ginger. Malt.


Medium and peppery. Lots of cinnamon. Dark honey and coffee. A puff of smoke.


I’m sorry to say this, but I find this expression rather bland. Not bad, just not very inspiring, either.

Score: good but not exceptional (82 / 100)
