Light cocnut aroma. Taste is smooth, with coconut, chocolate and fruits. Not burning - you would not guess 58%. Aftertaste is longer and pleasant with spicy chocolate tones.
In overal reminde me the Plantation XO but for 14y age and 58% I would expect higher/deeper complexity (maybe because of more continental, than tropical ageing) therefore only 8.5 points.
