Nose. Subtle, delicate, fresh, medium intensity sea breeze aroma with hints of flower honey, salted butter, lemon-orange peel, fresh pineapples, bananas, apples and pears, cigarette ash, perfume, vanilla and ginger.
Taste. Very light, slightly watery, but well-balanced taste with a silky creamy texture, in which there was a place for honey-fruity sweetness, citrus sourness, salty sea and sulphurous character, and a slight drying ginger-pepper, hoppy bitterness.
Aftertaste. Dry. A short. Ginger, hops, sulfur, salt.
Conclusion. The sea wave washed a plate left by someone on the northern island with cuts of various tropical fruits. An interesting combination. An interesting, memorable, complex malt with its own style, but all the wonderful flavor and aroma indicators, unfortunately, for the sake of commercial gain, are at a rudimentary, superficial level and are not fully disclosed.
Rating: 82 out of 100.
