Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonQuite a bit of classic maltiness. Some tangy mandarines thrown in too. Dryish. On a nice round malty sweetness, some fruits too. Clean and simple.
Craig DanielsNose: citrus and oak, bit of honey and vanilla, some citron, mandarines and pineapple. Palate; honey and oak, vanilla creams Finish; fading honey and citrus.
Rich Howardthe nose offers up herbal cherry cough drops, sour cherry, slightly sourish raisin, hints of mint, a light dash of vanilla and gentle oak on the tail. the palate starts on plums dusted with powdered sugar, then turns a bit tangy, some oak on the finish here as well, just a bit drying. water adds a dusting of powdered sugar to the nose, and more to that palate than it already had, and the tangy notes are largely gone. summary: fruity, herbal and oaky, perhaps a bit too sourish... becomes too "sweet and simple" with water.
