Fine, fresh and fruity – unexpected but I will take it. A nice combination between vanilla beans dipped in white honey, pineapple candies and all sorts of citrus aromas like lemon zest and freshly pressed lemon juice. Menthol and some floral hints in the background.


Sweet and relatively smooth. Tropical fruits, peppercorns and a good amount of oak, followed by mint chocolate and bitter nougat.


Medium and warming. Dry oak, pineapple covered in dark chocolate and a hint of anise.


Fruity, fresh and pretty straightforward – a rather nice everyday dram.

Score: 82 / 100
