    This guy surpasses expectations in his age and price. The rumor says it's a Tullibardine. Anyway ...
    • Nose
      Fresh and sparkling comes the horse of her Majestyet doted on. Almost a bit as bourbon, but framed by honey, spices and some mint.
    • Taste
      Fruit mix (also citrusy), honey, slightly bitter herbs
    • Finish
      Now a caramel bomb bursts, made interesting by crisp wood.
