Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonAttractive eucalyptusy fruity and spicy nose. Honey. Very fresh, also on menthol. Good one. Pretty perfect balance with the nose. All on spicy fruits and that so refreshing eucalyptus. Ends with nice milk chocolate. This style I adore.
Rich Howardwarm notes of apricot, molasses, a jumble of mixed nuts (peanut, pistachio, even hazelnut), nougat and red grapes on the tail. on the palate, the slightly salted nutty notes persist, along with the slightest hints of raspberry yogurt (not too sweet). with water, the nose is lighter now, the molasses is largely gone, but those gentle nutty nose persist, with toffee, cocoa and nougat. on the reduced palate, some tangerine emerges (somewhat unexpected), and still the sweet nougat and nuttiness. quite nice... summary: warm fruits with nougat and nuts.
