Straw gold.

Peat bogs and fudge! An intriguing mix of peat bogs, pine cones and birch tar, interlaced with the sweetness of fudge and caramel toffees and just a tang of salt. Refreshing menthol and eucalyptus simmer beneath creamy vanilla and chocolate.

Adding Water Water softens the nose revealing layers of glycerine soap, honeycomb, waxed lime peel and creamy lemon custard, before the freshness of gooseberries and honeydew melons is discovered. Floral notes of verbena and violet mingle with spicy black pepper and aniseed balls.

Explosive and mouth filling. Deliciously sweet and fruity as lemon syrup and orange oils enveloped in aromatic peat smoke coat the palate, before the tang of salt, gooseberry and clementine acidity cuts through the sweetness. Violet scented sweets and aromatic herbal and menthol notes are discovered, finishing with espresso coffee and dark chocolate.

Long creamy finish with touches of peat oils and bittersweet chocolate, violets and pine nuts.
