|Johannes van den Heuvel||Nose: Sweet & sour; fresh and expressive. First fruits, then farmy notes emerge. Weird development.
I liked it for the first minute but then it took a turn for the worse... Somber vegetal notes take over.
Taste: Heavy. Sweet coffee - almost mocca. Better than average but all-in-all a little bit one-sided.
I scored it 77 points - but then again I?m not a big fan of the modern lightly peated Clynelishes. |
