4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle- all of it, bits included. Beautiful fresh squeezed grapefruit, pine sap, intense flowers, almost patchouli nose. Lean and punishing with an iron-like richness; soap and flowers, G+T dryness, husk, greenery. Fairly massive bitterness subsiding into biscuit crumbs and a dab of honey. Finely misted orange with a low white head. Almost too much.
