hints of lime, peaches and mango, giving way to soft spice and melting vanilla ice cream.
Nose – Men’s perfume this time, firmly so. And a dusty, medicinal quality, that kind of antifungal cream thing, where you smell it and you can taste it at the back of your tongue. That creaminess is verging on mango with time. Fruitier with water, a little more straight laced, but with a really wonderful gravitas, particularly considering the age.
Body – Very creamy, with a sour but creamy tropicality which is very compelling, like a salty mango lassi. A little fence-y with water.
Finish – Numbing and powdery again, not gunpowder, more like talcum powder. Long though, with peppery but tropical fruit.
This is a cracker too, a lovely mature character for the age and price and interesting to drink.
