An inviting nose of tinned pineapple, honey and vanilla.
That easy nose hides the explosion of spice and oakey complexity that hits your palate. The spirit has a thick, velvety texture and spicy acidity tamed by sweet honey and that overripe pineapple so evident on the nose.
The best bit is the lasting honey and spice finish, which as it fades encourages you to have another sip and start the rollercoaster ride all over again.
