The nose offers a strange mix of mashed potatoes, butterscotch, Sevilla
oranges, hay, butane gas and cardboard. After having breathed for a bit, it
becomes somewhat perfumy. Dried flowers? Mint! My first encounter with Millburn
was equally strange. I am getting the feeling that Millburn and me are not a
very good match.
It is mildly oily and immediately both sweet and salty. The sweet
translates into candied sugar, Turkish Delight, maple syrup and caramel, while
the salt counters nicely. Seems like peanut butter. And I have to admit, this
is actually quite good. This Millburn is rehabilitating big time. The cardboard
is never far off, though.
The long finish on lightly bitter oranges and spices take the doubt
