— PLANTATION SINGLE CASK 2018 multi island XO —
Nose : It starts with a pastry profile on raisin, apricot, coconut and caramel and then evolves on rose, orange blossom, nutmeg and ginger. In short, a very fruity and spicy cake.
Palate : Fat and full, it follows the nose with a tad more oaky and peppery profile at first. Thereafter it evolves on baked pear, honey, Muscat grape, pineapple and cloves.
Finish : Very long and fresh with minty notes, also fruity notes of prune, mango, orange, licorice, vanilla and fresh tobacco.
