Nose: Fresh. Roasted smoked bacon, citrus, mirabelle, cherry, black tea.
Palate: oak, scorched wood, Lapsang Souchong tea with sugar and a bit of lemon. Less fruity than in the nose.
Finish: long, light smoke, oak, strong black tea, candy.
Conclusion: He is by no means wrong. But the basic character is for my taste a bit too much towards cheaper standard paint. If he could also get something cheaper and durable from the price, that would be a must-have for the guest bar.
