Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonSharp, edgy bourbon influence. Of the buttery thick vanilla kind. Quite dominating indeed. Alongside the loads of alcohol hiding in there. Thick, potent. Taste is intense, on loads of bourbony vanilla, alcohol. Very strong, might need some water. With water it rounds of nicely, quite attractive on the vanilla domination and creamy fruitiness.
Krishna NukalaSweet notes like sweet Indian paan (the betel leaves we chew)- winy fruity notes too.Oh, I think this has some complex notes, give time- it evolves. Do I get faint perfume? Very dry on palate. Lovely enjoyable taste. Spicy and long finish.(Blind tasting notes of MMA 2013)
