|Robert Karlsson||Feels sulphury at first nosing, rounds off with time. Oven-baked oranges. Big big nose. Really wins with time and a dash of water. Really tasteful total sherry influence. Big and bold, with the spent matches far in the aftertaste and not disturbing. Quite the experience. |
|Keith Wood||Glass: Classic Malt
- Colour: Dark treacle toffee with a hint of copper
- Nose: Oooh something quite different or perhaps unusual here ... rich and fruity but also something intensely herbal. I'm reminded of a soft drink from the UK called Dandelion & Burdock.
- Palate: I can say no other than the nose personnified with great emphasis on the intense herbal-ness.
- Finish: Long, very long, very intense and a nice lightly peppery tingle.
- Overall impression: Very rich, very herbal, truly excellent. |
