Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonHm, dry and a little cardboardy at first? Disappears with time.. then more sugary roundness. Oranges. Some mint? Hints of smoke? Special nose, quite exciting. Tastewise round from the start, still lively and fresh. Orange-inspired, a little sugary also. Smooth. Mandarins. Citrus. A boatload of stuff. At the very end the age shows with some bitter notes. Quite a malt to experience I'd say.
