Light and fresh with a complex fruitiness. Lots of tropical fruits like pineapples, mangoes, coconuts and figs, balanced by a rich, sweet maltiness. Vanilla parfait. Hints of oranges, dates with honey, heather and sandalwood.
Sweet, soft and full-bodied with a zesty freshness. Sweet citrus fruits, tropical fruits and wine gums accompanied by sweet spices. Followed by marshmallows, dark chocolate and herbal tea.
Long with a slight dryness. Fruits, cinnamon, fennel tea and a bit of heather.
A very fruity and elegant summer-like dram. Highly recommended – especially if you have a sweet tooth!
Score: 88 / 100
