Sam Coyne – 7.2
Nose: Loads of passion fruit. Powerful lime and creaminess. Tropical yoghurt in a glass.
Palate: Intensely sweet from the off. The passion fruit tends towards the side of tropical fruit sweets, before lime cuts through, both sweet and sour. Errs on the little bitter side.
Finish: Middling-to-long length with that intense lime note.
Comments: Does what it set out to do. With such flavours, lengthening out with tonic – perhaps go for an elderflower or a more floral offering.
David T. Smith – 7.4
Nose: Fruity aromas of passion fruit, pineapple, and orange make this a tropical nose with a little bit of sweetness.
Palate: The sweetness from the nose appears, like candied fruit – with notes of zesty topical citrus followed by juicy passion fruit and floral flavours. More tropical flavours over time.
Finish: A fruity finish with some jamminess and a touch of buchu, pineapple, and a touch of marzipan.
Comments: A particularly fruity spirit with a balanced sweetness and a really bold intensity.
