TASTING NOTES (by Whiskyfun.com)

Colour: full gold. Nose: powerful, leathery, with quite some humus and orange marmalade, then patchouli and a little eucalyptus. Mouth: rich, a tad kirschy, on orange marmalade and bitter spices. Quite some cinnamon. Maybe a tad brutal. Finish: long, very nervous. Comments: superb nose, the palate is a tad rough. SGP:572 - 87 points.
