Nose: Passion fruit, mango and grapefruit lead, with hints of damp and leafy mint pointing towards the long and careful ageing. The wood has left hints of sweet spice, but the sweet and sour tropical notes dominate.
Palate: The mouthfeel is juicy and warming, with the topical notes all coming together at once: guava, mango and grapefruit. Cardamom and vanilla cream complement the citrus, adding hints of milk chocolate, spiced chai tea and creamy fudge at the back of t the palate.
Finish: The fruit lingers but the oak remains, leaving a pleasing spiciness on the tongue.
