|Robert Karlsson||Kind mandarins, sugared citrus, well-rounded, not offensive anywhere. More spices with time. Wow, much bigger more aggressive and interesting taste than expected. Really packed with excellent clovey spices, nice one this. Oily. |
|Keith Wood||Glass: Classic Malt
- Colour: Rich, dark sherry with a tinge of copper
- Nose: Very aromatic with lots of aged oak and English Christmas cake fruitiness, but yet lightly perfumed too. There's also a faint maritime presence reminding me of an old rickety Atlantic pier. Polished brass and copper too? Yes, I think so.
- Palate: An initially smooth and creamy mouth-feel before a big dark fruit tingle storms the palate. Then followed by suggestions of chocolate and cappucino. Soooo good!
- Finish: Long with that chocolate and cappucino.
- Overall impression: This is good, very good as a perfect balance of aromas and flavours are delivery in a very sensual way. Must be a Great. |
