A slight whiff of wet dog on the nose. Mouthfeel as silky as a rich girl’s knickers. A harmonious macédoine of tropical fruits and citrus but no cloying sweetness. Is that a soupçon of hazel nut? Balanced bitterness balances the whole.

A lumbering leviathan of sticky maltiness swept along by more grapefruit zest than you can shake a stick at. Hints of pineapple and melon prevent this from being two-dimensional. A resinous cat’s tongue bitterness lingers like nostalgia for lost youth.
