The nose is very herbal, reminiscent of young rye. Joyously fruity with voluptuous aromas of tropical peach, apple, apricot and banana along with plenty of sweet barley and big, sweet, creamy oak. I would guess that some virgin American oak casks are working their way back in given the preponderance of oak notes. However the combination of the citrus and alcohol balances the sweetness.

The palate is full and toffee’d with lots of creamy vanilla. However the citrus slices through like a hot knife bringing the tropical fruit in its wake. Briefly it is quite sweet on the middle before the herbal rye-like notes rush in. Very long with the herbal notes lingering along with the banana, pineapple and oak.
