A wonderfully mature nose with waves of sawdusty oak and buckets of dusty vanilla enhanced barley. Brimming with tropical pineapple, peach, melon and kiwi, lubricatively coated with blossom honey and intermingling with pine nuts, pine sap, malt, mocha, milk chocolate shavings, a touch of smoke and a light herbal-peat intimation. Damn that’s a fine nose! It’s a real desert malt but there’s a balancing coastal edge and juicy citrus notes.

Oh! That just glides across the palate! Opening with the lush honeyed tropical fruit before the malt and darker wood spices emerge. A gorgeously juicy burst of citrus keeps the bittering oak at bay and allows the 90% pure cocoa to liberally coat the tongue. Extremely long with a beautiful barley and citrus fade along with hints of pine, green citrus fruit and a light waft of bbq smoke. Finally a little honey glazed meat, liquorice and camphor comes through on the after-taste. That’s mind blowingly good!
