coconut (GB)

The typical aroma of the fruit of the coconut palm is found in wines aged in American or French Allier oak barrels. It is mainly caused by various aromatic substances such as lactones and sotolone. On the Indonesian Moluccas, the bitter-tasting juice of the fruit is fermented to coconut wine and from this, a spirit is also distilled. See also under toast aroma.
