Appearance

Bright, clear gold. Good beading and thick, slow-running legs.

Body

Medium

Nose

Mellow in feel and slightly drying, with no prickle, leaving an unctuous fruity-oily first impression. The rich top notes suggest a salad of ripe tropical fruits; pear, papaya, pineapple and banana, sitting on a green base of fragrant oil or tropical forest foliage. Unusually, a drop of water increases all of these aromas.

Palate

At natural strength lightly oily and very smooth in texture, mouth-filling and lightly mouth-drying. The taste is rich and creamy vanilla-sweet overall, with some balancing fruity acidity, drying lightly in the finish. Easy to enjoy straight at this strength. Water, not too much, makes it smoother and sweeter still.

Finish

Quite short, sweet and smooth, and lightly drying, with a lingering spicy warmth. With water, smooth and sweet still, and just gently spicy at the end.
