    Wow, what a cask! Fresh and punchy, very fruity with balanced sweetness, right level of oak wood and good level of complexity - fantastic!

      Fresh and intense tropical fruits, mango, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, also cooked fruits such as cooked oranges, apricots, jam, honey, hints of wet tobacco, whiffs of oak wood, spices, pepper, cloves, very light seabreeze - superb!

      Punchy, oily, creamy, sirupy, good sweetness, again tropical fruits galore, more spices, pepper, zesty, more oak wood, slight saltiness and minerality - excellent!

    Nose: mango, pineapple, bananas, turbo gum, peaches in alcohol, vanilla, cherries in the distance. If I didn't want to try it, I could smell it for hours. Smile
    Taste and finish: harmony with the smell, tropical fruits, ripe bananas, still perceptible turbo gum, cherry and pear compote, a bit of chilli

    Divine nose, incredible mouthfeel, shocking finish. Exceptional. Again.
    • Nose
      Intense nose on a mixture of mango and peach. Then pineapple, guava, passion fruit. Banana and melon come to participate in the celebration. Cherry and plum. The ventilation brings its share of new guests. Pear and mirabelle plum. Orange and apricot. This is exceptional. Several drops of caramel syrup and a few peppercorns and cloves overall.
    • Taste
      Mouth copy / paste nose: mango, pineapple, passion fruit, guava, banana, peach, plum, cherry, pear, mirabelle plum, melon, orange, apricot. I wanted to rewrite them. Small, very woody, peppery saline acidity.
    • Finish
      Intense and so long finish, honey and chocolate, warm on tropical fruits which ripen in real time in the throat.
