SMWS Panel Notes
The aroma had an immediate calming effect for all of us, like marjoram essential oil – slightly warming, citric, herbaceous and woody with sweet scented pine needles. On the palate neat it’s like a ‘croque monsieur’ – boiled ham in brown grilled bread topped with grated cheese, seasoned with salt and pepper and baked in an oven.
With a little dilution we get lightly peat-smoked marshmallows as well as sweet lavender and rose water on the nose, whilst the taste is now very delicate, smooth and creamy like lightly oak-smoked goat’s cheese or a bacon, brie and red onion baguette.
