The aroma had for all of us an immediate calming effect like marjoram essential oil, slightly warming, citric, herbaceous and woody with sweet scented pine needles. On the palate neat like a ‘croque monsieur’, boiled ham in brown grilled bread topped with grated cheese, seasoned with salt and pepper and baked in an oven. With a little dilution lightly peat smoked marshmallows as well as sweet lavender and rose water on the nose, whilst the taste is now very delicate, smooth and creamy like lightly oak smoked  goat’s cheese or a bacon, brie and red onion baguette.
