Nose
Lightly grassy, leafy, earthy.
Palate
Textured body. Honeyed. Rummy. Bitter chocolate. Ginger. Spicy. White pepper.
Finish
Salty. Rooty.
Comment
Disappointing. Where is the richness, and especially the island character?

Nose
Rich yet subtle. Minty freshness. Pear drops and pineapple. Floral notes and a hint of honey.
Palate
Sweet and mellow. Mouth-coating. Biscuity and buttery (lemon cake). Fresh crushed almonds with a touch of aniseed. White chocolate. Ginger.
Finish
Long, warm, whispering out a luscious combination of mixed spices.
Comment
A cheering malt with a rich array of aromas and flavours. Enjoy with good company.
