rather one-dimensional. The nose, palate and finish are all the same. I would
not call this boring, but it is not exactly exciting either.
A nose rife with wood shavings,
hazelnuts, vanilla, a touch of nougat and some red fruit. Raspberries? The
vanilla becomes a tad loud, making this dram lack depth. The oak rears its head
as well, with a touch of cinnamon and a big helping of nutmeg. Fresh mint.
After a few moments I get something that reminds me of butter milk.
It is creamy on the palate.
Spicy, too. Cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. The fruit gets more room to develop.
The raspberries turn into strawberries. Yes, very sweet strawberries.
The finish is quite long
and spicy, but offers nothing new.
