PRODUCER'S TASTING NOTES

Colour: Bright gold

Aroma:  Rich, sweet and fruity with fresh bright floral top notes. At full strength, the aroma is rich in butterscotch and honey, drizzled with fresh mint and a burst of coconut. The nose is full of citrus: freshly squeezed lemons fill the nose. With water, the sweetness intensifies. White sugar, lemon meringue, then creamy and luscious sweet fruits: pineapple, pears and peaches in vanilla ice-cream. 

Taste: The mouth-feel is deliciously smooth, rich and creamy, full of sumptuous sweet and fruity flavours.  The taste is exceptionally well-rounded and balanced.  Initially crème-brulée emerges with more tropical and stone fruits.  Apricots smothered with vanilla custard.  Hazelnuts in soft buttery fudge mix with some clove spiciness and toasted oak.  Shortly after, the palate is gently cleansed by a hint of cooling mint and fresh menthol.   

Finish: Long and smooth with a lingering mix of honey and almond, coconut ice and traces of aniseed.
