Tasting notes
Taster   Becky Paskin
Nose: Crunchy tropical muesli with toasted oats and coconut, brimming with raisins, dried grapefruit peel, cranberries and papaya.
Palate: Creamy with lots of dried tropical fruits: apricot, papaya and mango with a healthy dollop of vanilla cream. A handful of toasted coconut shavings sprinkled on top.
Finish: Coconut pannacotta and diced mango too.
Comment: Really delicious. Good enough to convert those single malt snobs.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Straight back to summer days of high heat, warm grass and hot car seats. 70s suntan lotion and Bounty bars.
Palate: Full on trail mix with dried pineapple, honey roasted cashew nuts, rum and raisin ice cream floats with American Cream Soda.
Finish: Just takes its time with plenty of sweetness and that roasted nuttiness.
Comment: Lovely stuff, everything is in balance, just what a blend should do really.
