Nose: this one is much weaker at first nosing, with just hints of oak (plank), flour, chalk and cardboard. Not much development after that, except a little green tea and a little mint. Rather a disappointment so far. Mouth: indubitably better, with more oomph and a nice vanilla at first sipping as well as excellent herbal notes (mint, lemon balm) Good balance, with also hints of rum and coffee toffee.

Finish: long, warming, spicier now (ginger, cloves, dried cardamom). Well, the nose wasn't too nice but the rest is quite superb. Patience needed with this one. SGP:442 – 85 points.
