    A nice surprise, that
    is the least you can say about this one.
    • Nose
      The nose starts
      rather sweet and in all honesty reminds me of – do not laugh – warm milk with
      honey, the drink you offer the little one before tucking him in. It also
      offers some fruit, mostly oranges. Tends towards quinine. Tonic. And a hint of
      peat. Really? Touch of rubber as well. Anyway, this nose is more
      than interesting.
    • Taste
      It is quite oily on
      the palate with again the honey, making things very succulent. Immediately the
      oranges reappear, followed by hints of sultanas. Oh, yes, the peat is clear on
      the palate as well. It even has a salty lining. Who would have thought. The quinine returns in full battle armor. Not too fruity, but pleasant
      and spicy nonetheless.
    • Finish
      The finish is fairly
      long, spicy, sour and sweet.
