Description

The nose starts sweet, lovely, delicate and sophisticated – honey, maple syrup on pancakes, mocha and chocolate donuts; cherry and pineapple; jasmine, elderflower and hay – slowly the understated wood and spice show themselves – varnished pine, cinnamon toast and turmeric. The palate is bathed in a sunshine glow of tropical fruits (banana, custard apple, monstera) – intensely sweet, mouth-watering and lip-smacking, but with Victory V’s and salt and pepper crisps reminding us it has slept long in oak. The reduced nose finds yellow Chartreuse, Tooty Frooties and pineapple jelly. The palate now has succulent lychee and more-ish coconut; totally tropical and great!
