Something for the midsummer, gentle heat and great spices. Lovely stuff.
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: A little waxy at the start, think 70s suntan lotion with those pineapple and coco butter notes. Warm brioche buns with sultanas, vanilla custard. Honeycomb slices and raspberry coulis. A soft woollen note too.
Palate: Soft spices, chilli and honey coated hazelnuts. Warmed milk. Black banana and milk chocolate.
Finish: Honey and chocolate, also develops some great tannin notes to pull the cheeks in.
Comment: Something for the midsummer, gentle heat and great spices. Lovely stuff.
Nose: Rummy – tropical fruit salad, underpinned with festive spice. The spice prickles the nose a little bit. A gentle strawberry jam note in the background.
Palate: Spicy – the oak grips. Sweetness of fruit and nut studded chocolate and a faint coffee note. Grilled pineapple served on a wooden stick. A ham note right at the end, although sweetened.
Finish: Long and very drying. Sweetness mellows a little bit.
Comment: Lots of different layers and nothing becomes too overpowering. Plays with sweetness well.
