— PLANTATION SINGLE CASK 2018 BARBADOS 7 YEARS —
Nose : At first the single malt whisky dominates with a malty and fruity profile, mostly of peach and caramel. Then it becomes spicier with cinnamon, grassier with coriander, and there is a delicate note of fresh vanilla. Finally, it evolves on a citrusy note with some pear.
Palate : The first sips have a good balance between the malt whisky and the rum, with a fruity and grassy profile of lemon verbena and refreshing mint balanced by very fine tannins. Then follow green walnut, passion fruit and some light meaty and camphor notes.
Finish : Long and quite dry with lingering tannins on Jamaican pepper, pear, citrus and some light wood smoke.
