Aroma: Intense, pungent & aromatic, with a distinctive farmyard aroma, along with a crunchy aroma, like creosote or tarry rope. The smoke is all dominating, but has a slightly sweet edge to it, almost like dark chocolate. A splash of water opens the bouquet, with some dark chocolate cream, and a hint of smoked artichoke.

Taste: The mouthfeel is spicy/warming, with an initial burst of bittersweet flavours – coal dust, cardamon, peppermint, eucalyptus, and more dark chocolate with some coffee grits. In the background there are some old-fashioned boiled sweets, like aniseed twists, cinnamon balls, and antiseptic lozenges.

Finish: The aftertaste lingers long and bold with an ongoing, almost anaesthetising sensation


A missing purifier. A dram forsaken. The balance…lost.

PUNGENT earthiness fills the lungs. Aromatic clouds of DARKEST CHOCOLATE and SHARP PEPPERMINT ascend. ANISEED and POWDERY CINNAMON billow, while the tang of MENTHOL lingers. With the PURIFIER gone, WHO will RESTORE the BALANCE?

One per household.
