My Tasting Notes:
Nose: Almost nothing first, then a mix of vanilla, fruit and some pepper emerges.
Palate: Vanilla, lemon zest, mixed fruit, pepper, hints of chili.
Finish: Medium long and spicy.
Overall: The nose needs some time to open up, but on the palate there is just too little flavour to back the rather strong spices.
Rating: 76/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
