Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonAttractive spicy dark style. Distinctly lively, fresh and intriguing. On dark fruits and dark spices (cardemom). Nutmeg? Excellent dark chocolate, toffee. Yummy nose. Doesn't improve with time, however. Becomes weird on dominating cereal tones. Taste along the same lines but not as fresh and intriguiing as the nose hinted at. The aftertaste is slightly gunpowdery. This one should not wait in the glass, deteriorates badly.
