My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Dark straw
Nose: Candied orange and lemon zest, candle wax, vanilla, hints of ginger and a gentle waft of sea air turning into a breeze with a few drops of water added.
Palate: Mild but noticeable peat, orange zest, hints of other topical fruit, liquorice, vanilla, honey, dried herbs, ginger, white pepper and so much more..
Finish: Very very long, with lingering flavours refusing to fade.
Overall: What can you say? It’s magnificent. It has that hard to find quality to be both mild and strong at the same time.
Rating: 93/100 – no price information as this is a collector’s bottle
