Nose
Mossy, leafy and earthy, like a moist pine forest. Then it's into pine sap, sawn wood staves, a hint of coconut shell and a touch of blackcurrant.
Palate
Hot and spicy, with a burst of chilli chocolate, giving way to a more silky fondant coated coconut, with a touch of cream.
Finish
Tinned peaches, condensed milk and a touch of drying oak, leading to a dash of cayenne pepper. Superb.
Comment
Everything in its right place here and no mistake.

Nose
Dried fruit, apricots, pineapples and bananas. Coffee with steamed milk. A floral note, incense sticks, cedar boxes and a little mint.
Palate
Sweet and warm at first. Blood oranges, caramel, grilled pineapple and chilli jam. Hints of Chantilly cream and egg custard.
Finish
Hot with chilli and cumin spice.
Comment
What a belter, big, bold and layered.
