89
Very Good,
Strong Recommendation

Tasting Notes:

Deep, seductive aromas of boysenberry jam, toasted oak, and green herbs are bolstered by rich hints of toffee and coconut. The rum cask influence is apparent on the palate with lush red fruits marked by hints of caramel and vanilla with a silky smooth texture.
