Palate: Earthy vanilla with linseed. Grapefruit pith. Spices. Pepper. Floral too. With a hint of tobacco cinnamon and cumin.
Finish : Dry. Grapefruit pith and spices.
This is a nice and rather complex dram, with lovely Grapefruit notes, as well as earthy feel to it. Much more complex than I had anticipated it to be. Very nice! Jim Murray gave it 96.5 in his 2013 bible, but I know it really means nothing, like many of his questionable marks. It’s very good no doubt, yet not over 90 in my book anyways.
