Nose
Lightly chlorinated, salted apricot, banana, pineapple and citrus. Delicate oak follows with hints of camphor, reeds and sweet peat. With time it fills out rather well.
Palate
Barley sweet. Fruit forward with apricot, banana and subtle citrus notes. The peat, although pleasantly sweet, creeps in with a touch of camphor but doesn't assert itself.
Finish
Good length, the subtle smoke lingering along with the salt infused fruit. Late hints of mocha, liquorice and creosote.
Comment
Just like the Spice King it showed more complexity on the nose than on the palate.
