That's an absolutely gorgeous nose! Luscious and honeyed with tropical melon, apricot, papaya, grape, apple and unsweetened pineapple. There's a hint of Cognac-esque dried fruit and more than a hint of sexy, sawdusty American oak and late heather.

The palate is equally luscious and honeyed with sawdusty oak, heather, barley and a slightly more restrained tropical fruit character. A little gritty but sweetly spiced tannin on the middle which is softened by the vanilla. Beautifully balanced finish with sweet fruit, minerals, gooseberry and lime.
