Nose: Quite delicate, with some hints of toffee,

Taste: A hint of salt to begin with, followed by a lot of sweetness, reminding me of honey, some white pepper and citrus zest

Finish: Long with lemon zest and a bit of bitterness coming from the zest

Priced between £30 and £40 on UK websites, it's highly drinkable whether neat or with a drop or two of water.
