Nose: Bright and juicy. Ripe peaches, banana, mango, prunes, fresh flowers, vanilla, and sweetened condensed milk. Sweet, almost candied malted barley, with graham crackers and earthy undertones. Some tartness from tangy citrus peels. Slightly nutty, slightly green, perhaps some salted sunflower seeds. Some slightly musty dried herbs, with clove and lots of nutmeg, cardamom, and cinnamon.
Palate: Medium-thick texture. Sweet and floral arrival, with white cherries and bananas. Tart and tropical, before a wave of vanilla and grapefruit. Rich, thick malted barley, almost savoury. Some fragrant oak on the development, maybe closer to sandalwood or teak. Lots of honey here, with vanilla and butter and a hint of black pepper. Fragrant hibiscus, passionfruit, almonds, sage, and more of those white cherries. Toasted coconut towards the back end.
Finish: Medium-long. Soft tropical fruit. Fresh-baked macaroons, yellow plums, lemon meringue pie, honey, nougat, and white chocolate. Some gentle mint.
