Tasting Note:

‘The Celestial Blaze’

Matured first in refill and new American Oak, then in Amontillado seasoned casks. 57.1% ABV.

Appearance: Pale, ethereal gold. Nose: Gentle in feel, with no prickle. The top notes are faint at first yet grow easier to make out, studded with maritime hints of salt crystal, edible seaweed, and ozone-fresh sea air. As the senses adjust a very faint smokiness appears, infused with mere suggestions of lint and light olive oil, and a light note of lemon citrus fruit.

Body: Medium.

Palate: The texture is soft and creamy-smooth, while the taste shines brightly with wine-fruit notes that carry hints of sweet violet and spiced plum. The fruit is balanced by a lively spiciness first met as saltiness midpalate, then in a blazing dash of chili pepper. A little water softens the taste, taming the spiciness without altering the balance overall.

Finish: Quite long and surprisingly peppery, leaving a smooth memory of chili pepper in the maritime aftertaste
