maneliquor (3469) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 1, 2014
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours dirty amber with a small khaki head. Nose is stupidly oaky with plenty of juicy tropical fruits and sweet vanilla. Mild sugar and apples. So well rounded. As it warms dark fruits come out to play. You would never guess this is 11%. Taste is very dark fruit and tropical - date, raisin, mango, peach, nectarine. Loads of stone fruits with plenty of vanilla. Superb depth and roundness in this. Lacks that killer punch but it’s made astoundingly well. Very good
