Extraordinary,
Ultimate Recommendation

Tasting Notes:

Even while showing its barrel-aged origins on the nose with hints of vanilla and toffee, there’s an enticing ripe tropical fruitiness that underlines everything. On the palate, all is exposed: Worn leather, grass, and sugarcane with baking spice popping its head up for the finish.
