Cask sample. Opaque centre with a wide rim. An astonishing nose of cedar and tobacco - no fruit of any description! The cedar comes through on entry, followed by an amazing passion fruit and Canteloupe melon. Huge tannins grab the palate but never overwhelm the fruit, which is persistently over-ripe Canteloupe melon. Chewy aftertaste with a finish that leaves a lingering "Wrigley's Juicy Fruits" finish. Unique flavour profile! 85-87.
Tasted 12 September 2018.
