Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonSome special slightly sweet-sourly bourbony thick vanilla. Also on dried red fruits, raisin? Candied oranges. Big bold nose. Big taste also. Quite in balance with the nose. Quite thick on wood influence, bourbony vanilla although it's full of drier fruits. A bit odd bird, but quite enjoyable.
