I had this at TWE O&R show and just had to take a little more home to re-savour. I scored it 90 points at the time.
N: Its one of those ‘aah’ drams, perfectly-sweet & creamy, served with a supreme fruit salad [strawberries, apples, melons, papaya,…], custard creams and pastries galore - all of it waxed-up like apples & pears prepared for a Green Grocer display. Add a few herbs [marjoram, spearmint perhaps], sweet dandelion & burdock, other floral fragrant delights, ginger beer, sweet prune juice, dates,… you get the picture. In short, a heavenly aromatic/fragrant, tropical fruit-basket>herbal candle.
T: I didnt take this home for ‘under-the-microscope’ scrutiny, i simply wanted to enjoy more of its 'super-happy place'.
F: Aside from the [tropical] elixir-sweet fruit basket, theres a key counter note of bitter-sour dunnage & sweet-bitter mandarin citrus running underneath - one which naturally belies this malts true grand age.
C: And what of age, and score for that matter? - just a number, that's what. Joy in a glass right here, a fine way to celebrate life [starting] at 40.
