“This sample arrive with he previous one and I'd loved a bottle of this one as well. A very good take on Jamaica indeed. The nose is funky with ester and fermentation notes followed by fruits and sweet vanilla. The palate is also funky with ester, tar and varnish followed by fruit and woody vanilla. The finish is long and warm with wood, ester and lovely fruit.”
