    Fantastic stuff. The nose is the most interesting part for me. But boy, do I love the tropical fruits in this dram. Fruit bomb galore!
    • Nose
      Tropical fruits, such as papaya and mango. A hint of marzipan. Then a honey note in the background, which is followed by apricots and vanilla. Ending with sweet oranges and ginger.
    • Taste
      Grapefruit here. Then it goes towards passionfruit and peach. A hint of bananas. Vanilla. Honey and a little bit of marzipan. A touch of ginger and oak. It is somewhat spicy.
    • Finish
      A long finish. Somewhat salty and with a bitter edge of grapefruit and oak spices.
