This 9 year old from Barbados and Jamaica has aromas of wood, vanilla and coconut, exotic fruits, a bouquet of flowers, light caraway, beehive wax and light green notes. The palate is fresh and dry, almonds and roasted peanuts, light brandy and encaustic notes, honey and flowery undertones. The finale is dry vanilla, old wood notes and dark chocolate.
