Straight away those oak and vanilla notes. Fresh fruit as well as tinned fruit. Confectionery and flowers but not sure which. Ripe bananas, honey dew melon and lemon zest.
The nose is very light but give it time and it will show its colours.
On first sip I thought it tasted stronger than 43%. Same with the second sip but that is okay, it is delightfully fruity with a pinch of spice.
This actually reminds me of Navigator in so many ways.
This settles really well on the third sip and goes down with ease.
A medium fruity finish and the only flaw is the slight dryness on the death, you just want it to be sweet which is a shame but it's nitpicking on my part.
