Tasting Notes

Nose

High alcohol. Robust. Orange, dried fruits, Dundee cake. Big, resinous with lacquer-like notes. Some sulphur.

Palate

Very aggressive, even brutal, when neat. Water brings out a scented quality, glacé cherries, tobacco. Much better with water.

Finish

Tight. Resin.

Comment

This is all about power, show and bravado and misses out on elegance depth and nuance. Some will love it.
