    I was expecting a total fruit bomb and one the nose it was more about spices - but then on the palate the fruit bomb crashed in - fantastic!
    • Nose
      Intense spicy and fruity, mediterranean spices such as thyme, sage, whiffs of lavendel, later more on tropical fruits, mango, green bananas, green pineapple, carambole, white pepper - very good
    • Taste
      Very, very oily, creamy, waxy, mellow - what can I add more? and of course fresh and intense fruity, again tropical fruits, honey, pepper, nutmeg, hints of cinnamon? anyways it's a bomb - great
    • Finish
      Medium long, warm, fruity, spicy, a tad bitter
