Zesty red fruits, most prominently red currant. Red apple, elderberry, lychee, a slice of peach, jasmin tea, Orangina, water melon, salted butter toffee, cookie dough and a fresh hint of mint. Very nice and fizzy nose. A tropical fruitcake with a little salty edge.
Fruit buiscuits, orange marmelade, juicy watermelon, lots of coffee, minty and herbal. Fernet Menta, chocolate, aged Madeira wine. A lot more oaky than I expected from the nose. Reminds me of the Vinho Barrique bottling. Tangy finish on red berries and bitter apple peel.
As with most Kava’s, this bottling is all about the great quality cask selection. This is liquid sunshine in a glas. /89
