The nose has notes of fruit, jam, marmalade, a hint of maltiness, butterscotch, vanilla, and coconut in a very vibrant balance. The taste is peppery, but not fiery, with acidic citrus notes but still well-balanced. Fresh berries become apparent as the spice and citrus fade. The finish is aromatic and light, but lingers well with a great mouthfeel. Water accentuates the vanilla and coconut while delaying the pepper burst. Very nice.
