This is the first of three Explorer’s Club expressions for the travel retail market, and as the name indicates, the nose is spicy with touches of ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, and hints of honey and coconut. The taste is smooth and spicy with good cinnamon that doesn’t overpower notes of ginger, caramel candy, vanilla, and coconut. The finish has light, soft spices that linger well.
