Description

The initial smell was just like a Greek liqueur called Mastiha made using the resin from the mastic tree on the island of Chios with a pleasant sweet, slightly salty and highly fragrant pine and cedar-like aroma. On the palate it started deceivingly fresh and sweet with a hint of spice but wait for the second wave – fiery, white pepper and chilli might just take your breath away! When we added water aromas of tropical ice cream pie with kiwi, starfruit and sweetened shredded coconut. The taste now less severe (however we liked the challenge neat!) with a hint of dry, yeasty and sweet flavours like in a brut Prosecco.
