Lot ES.03.22.CE, 49% abv

Review #25: strong flavors and aromas of strawberry right from the start, then some vanilla, bright watermelon, pine, ash (but not smoke-y, more of an earthy ash) fresh wet soil, and wet stone.

This has excellent fruitiness balanced by earthiness. This may be closer to a 7-7.5/10, but I’m pushing it to an 8 for now. It lacks intensity and complexity, but the style of flavors worked well for me. Definitely easy sipping
