    Milky peach and pineapple on nose, warm and coating on the palate, with a mineral bite on the finish balancing with the tropical fruit

      Sweet, strong, pepper, some caramel sweetness, licorice. Later on more sweet fruits, peach and orange.
    • Finish

      Still pretty strong, sweet fruity, peach, a lot of peach actually. Pretty long and strong, wood inluence.

    • Nose
      91 91
      Fresh cut oranges, vibrant and bright orange. Lemon zest, canned peaches. Sweet, soft and very mellow. A very odd ben nevis from the usual.

      Caramel in the mix, floral with subtle earthy notes. Hazelnut milk chocolate.
    • Taste
      92 92
      Sweet peaches, the orange from the nose comes by at a lesser acidity. Banana cream puff pastry, raspberry jam and apple strudel.

      White pepper splashed all over *cough*.
    • Finish
      91 91
      Warm and lengthy. Just goes on and on.

      The feeling after eating food with msg. Dry and needing for water.
