|Robert Karlsson||Total cardemom, barbecue spices, very spicy, dryish and lively indeed. So much wood influence! Taste in full balance with the nose. Very big and packed-full of spices and special fruits. The aftertaste is really bitter, fernet-style, and lasts. |
|Keith Wood||Glass: Classic Malt
- Colour: Very dark mahogany (liquid treacle toffee)
- Nose: Aromatic, very aromatic. Floral in a rich and dark kind of way with aged oak in the background.
- Palate: Oooh nice, very nice indeed. How can this be so rich but yet so subdued and civilised with lots of floral lightness? It's a gentle giant in the nicest possible way.
- Finish: I thought medium to long, but then it just continued repeating in a delightfully very long way.
- Overall Impression: Such a dark and rich floral delight. It's wonderful, magnificent, another true "Great" by a country mile. |
