    Review and Tasting

    Sampled on 17/08/2011

    Appearance

    Clear, golden.

    Aroma

    Tropical fruit, tinned pineapple, sherbet, aromas burst from the nose with vanilla and grapefruit zest.

    Taste

    Hydrated to approx. 43% abv. yields sweet, strong tropical fruit flavours (overripe tinned and caramelised pineapple, banana, passion fruit) are also immediately apparent on the generous palate where waves of vanilla and zesty citrus vie for attention with invigoration cinnamon spice.

    Aftertaste

    This spiciness along with vanilla and citrus flavours continue throughout the long finish.
