Fresh, fruity and almost sour. Not what I did expect but compelling nonetheless. Green apples, pear juice, mangoes, sweet oranges and candied lime zest with a cooling note of peppermint and menthol. A bit woody around the edges with spruce wood and pine cone. Hints of vanilla infused honey and caramel in the back.
Sweet and creamy. Bananas covered in bitter chocolate and honeydew bites. Balanced by white pepper and salted butter.
Long and creamy. At first dry oak until the trademark Highland Park heather-smoke kicks in.
Well balanced but not boring at all. The fruitiness caught me by surprise, but in a good way.
Score: 88 / 100
