“The nose is awesome and extremely complex. English Breakfast tea meets banana puree, prune and neat wood with some dark chocolate and toffee. For 69% very harmonious.Taste then an absolute explosion of fruit, spice and beautiful intense wood tones, if the thing is not minimum 80% tropical matured I do not know. Very intense after banana bread with dark chocolate coating, toasted coconut chips, rum raisins, roasted almonds, leather and honey, prune and date, allspice and dark caramel. Grandiose and incredibly tasty and drinkable despite 69%!!!Like tipping st. Lucia, foursquare and 94 New Yarmouth together. Really cool.”
