- 8yo, really? If you told me sweet little 16, I would have believed you. Much more mature than any of the A'bunadhs of the last years, even decade...
The nose is compacted with oranges, some of them blood oranges and candied, marzipan, krokant (english?), , milk chocolate, nutty oloroso with a touch of very old balsamico vinegar to make it super interesting. On the palate a repitition of the nose explodes, with the balsamico making the mouth watering difference with a darker (60+%) chocolate now. This is top class. The finish fits the overall impression is rather geeentle but looonger than expected. This is worth to be your x-mas or birthday dram. There must be very happy people out there somewhere in Taiwan. How about trading some Nantou back? ;-)
I wasn't convinced at first that this should be a 90 points dram, certainly the second or third dram told me so.
- Another BFYB!
