When I read “notes of leather” – I’m not going to lie…it freaked me out! As a vegetarian I cringe at the thought of leather and even if I wasn’t a vegetarian I hate the aroma leather has. Luckily…I didn’t pick up on any of the leather-likeness! The owner of this company is a vegetarian, too, which I thought was pretty awesome! So…perhaps it’s more of a Pleather. :)
Anyhow…This is slightly smokey on the nose. The taste is slightly smokey, too, and it’s a nice slightly-smokey, indeed! There are fruity notes I am picking up on which are darned close to plum!
The more I sip this the more I like this too! It has a smoother aftertaste which is surprising and welcomed!
