Description

An unusual nose evoking herbs, soft fruits, slate, lemon juice on oysters and boquerones en vinagre – one panellist imagined the enemy ships burning at Trafalgar (wood, tar, wicker, canons and gunpowder). The palate had black jacks (liquorice and blackcurrant), lavender perfume and herbal hints – a sweet, smoky, salty combo that promised more dirty fun than Adam and Eve in the Fall. The reduced nose was rather masculine – rock-pools, matchboxes, damp woolly jumpers on radiators and dried penguin in Shackleton’s hut. The reduced palate had liquorice, dry ash and olive oil – definitely an eyeball-rolling, bicep-bulging, spinach-guzzling Popeye hero of a dram.
