    Sexy, classy and exciting.
    • Nose
      The absolute class: finesse, discretion, elegance ... Exoticism evaporates from the glass in discrete volutes of kiwi, white pineapple, guava juice ... Fresh and tangy blackcurrant from behind, or is it currant crushed in a little sugar? We then detect beeswax, honey and a light woody, which curve the fruity accents without crushing them. Deep nose, fresh, airy, landscaped ... The best!
      (93+)
    • Taste
      The blackcurrant juice becomes obvious. Fresh and tangy. It whirls in notes of waxy coconut (sic), beehive, and in the juice of other fruits with exotic accents (pineapple, passion fruit).
      (92)
    • Finish
      Very long, tangy, shimmering, chiseled. The acidulous juice of the exotic fruits is darker (blackcurrant) and then goes out in a super-classy woody, melted and honeyed. The blackcurrant juice is back in strength and titillates the taste buds.

    I have from reliable source that Cooley already did some distilling in 1988
