Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonDry bourbony style. Slightly floral. More buttery with time. Quite intense on the bourbony style. Ought to be strong this one. Nice, clean and not overly complicated.
Rich Howardimmediate hit of light mandarin orange, pineapple, lemon echinacea cough drops, small cedar box, a dash of vanilla creme. the palate is gently herbal, with those lemon echinacea cough drops, with some polished wood on the finish. a drop of water accents the light mandarin orange on the nose, and the polished wood as well, still some vanilla creme on the tail. the palate is both a bit sweeter and a bit more herbal, with the mandarin orange and the oak on the finish. summary: a citrus echincea herbal cough drop dram, with a woody vanilla finish... better without water.
