Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonA full box of spent matches must've been dropped into this bottle somehow. Really quite overpowering, hides anything else I could find here. Unfortunately also big on dark sulphury notes in the taste. Here also dark sweet-sourly fruits. Still that sulphur stops it from getting higher.. with water it settles somewhat but still. A bit sad.
Krishna NukalaDry fruits, cinnamon stick and some lactones in the rear,winy oloroso notes, some fruit cake, marzipan. Delicious, brilliantly sweet and smooth. It goes down like velvet down the gullet. Class act.(Blind tasting notes of MMA 2013)
