|Robert Karlsson||Slightly restrained, elegant? Hints of licorice and wild strawberries. Kind and inoffensive (and no hint of the wine cask..). Tastewise equally kind, sweetish, easy to drink, berried and uncomplicated. |
|Keith Wood||Glass: Classic Malt
- Colour: Dark teak
- Nose: Rich aged oak and leather, marinated (in red wine) nuts and that typical English Christmas cake style. There are also some lightly floral notes which really enhance the experience.
- Palate: An initial creaminess to the mouth-feel followed by an intense fruitiness (think Plum, damson & bramble here) with those gentle floral background notes.
- Finish: It just goes on and on and on ...... then a suggestion of coconut right at the end.
- Overall Impression: Big and intense liquid luxury, I love it and a "Great" too. |
