Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonBig sherry bomb here. With rum influences. So, sherry style with all there is + quite some more + rum arrak style. Intriguing and oh so dark. Very intense taste, on a dried fruit compote. Really quite massive indeed. The nose is quite perfectly mirrored here I'd say. With a bitter bite at the end. Evil dram with lots of everything.
Krishna NukalaCough syrup with rich dry fruits. Zinger cake that contains raisins, dates, etc. Cinnamon and cloves on palate. Very rich and deliciously rich palate. Some what dry towards the finish but with an everlasting finish (Blind tasting notes of MMA 2013)
