Gentle aromatic notes and crisp red apples, which develop into candy apple and citrus develops sweet menthol note as it oxidises
Vibrate and boisterous on the palate, not aggressive but full of life. Nice spicey note on the foretaste, a bit like a peppery haggis. There is a latent sweetness, the menthol note of the nose lingers on the palate, but gradually the red fruit and citrus notes of the oloroso come to the fore
Soft, gentle sweetness that lingers on the tongue. Not drying o the palate but rather it lingers sweetly and gently. Chocolate orange and soft and tingly peppery sweetness on the tongue and a gentle citrus and rose water. This dram tastes older than its real age.
