Nose: mellow, with elusive but unmistakable top notes seaweeds of crunchy seaweed, crystalline salt and coarse black pepper on a shade of wood, perhaps accompanied by fish fillets lightly smoked white. After a while a memory is added of sweet spicy sauce, while with a drop of water, olive oil light becomes the top note.
Palate: Very smooth, soft and enveloping in texture, taste it is fruity and slightly citrusy, balanced by a pinch of salt a half of the palate gives an insistent but never intrusive spiciness, coming from freshly burned barrels. The effect is vigorous, with a great balance between the crunchy spice of wood and character fresh and fruity from the distillery. Staying sweet all the time, it is delicious smooth, while a drop of water slightly rounds i flavors, bringing out the fruity notes
Finish: Long enough, with a spicy finish with a hint of pepper. The water brings on a nice soft warmth in the aftertaste, as if to announce a last flash of light.
