Nose: Delicate, fresh, and alive. Plums, grapes, herbs, grass, pine forest, oak, sandalwood. Inviting, and with very little graininess.

Palate: Oaky and vibrant. Pine, ginger, mustard, cedar, honey. The flavours are fresh and they balance beautifully with the subtle spices.

Finish: Medium in length. Pine, fresh cedar, herbs, honey, mustard seed, grass, ginger, plum, grapes, gooseberries. Balanced and dynamic, I’m really enjoying this.

Well it's time to disregard my initial review on this one. I love it. It's fresh, light, and bright. Aside from the near-perfect balance, there’s a great deal of complexity here. The grape, plum, and fruit flavours integrate perfectly with the wood. The grain is present, but compliments the complex profile. This is much more than just a beautiful bottle, it's one of the finest blends I’ve had.
