AROMA: Light touches of smoke weave around crisp green apple, sweet poached pear and creamy vanilla. Subtle hints of salt linger, while maple cured bacon adds a subtle sweetness.
PALATE: Mouth-coating oiliness infused with ground ginger and chilli flakes. Toasted banana and freshly ground coffee beans fade to reveal a delicate menthol edge.
FINSIH: Long lingering finish as twists of lemon zest pair with a satisfying peat smoke.
