N: Waxy pineapple cubes, unripe bananas, and clean honey malt. Doesn’t come across as a blend like so many do, although it is very consolidated.
T: Light arrival - peppery and oaky with resh mint, lamb & pork with sweet malt surging through. Waxy. Nice shape on development - easy
F: Waxy, fresh-ish, creamy, vanilla finish. Not very concise but well blended. Bitter lemon dominates the finish. Very tannic at the death.
C: Surprisingly good considering its reputation and marketing. Lets not get too carried away but there is complexity, age and a simple and shapely journey from sweet to sour.
Scores a C-
