Japanese Oak cask – 48%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Bright amber
Nose: Banana, mango, polished wood, ginger, nutmeg and some floral notes as well.
Palate: A mixed tropical fruit cocktail with honey, toasted nuts and caramel, hints of ginger and nutmeg.
Finish: Long, fruity and slightly sweet.
Overall: Nicely sweet, fruity and slightly floral, a fine dram with a strong attack on the palate but rather shy towards the end.
Rating: 84/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
