(40%, OB 2012, Rivers Collection, Season 2012)

Nose: starts completely on butter caramel. Then moves to cooked oranges and orange marmalade with chocolate. Some hay. Almonds. Baked apples. Also hints of rubber in the distance. Mouth: rather sweet and mellow. Apples and raisins. Some honey. Toffee. Then it grows slightly drier, with herbal notes and a faint bitterness. Lacks a bit of punch. Finish: rather short, as if most of the flavour disappeared and only the (harsher) grainy notes remain.

A bit of a mixed bag. Disappointing nose, a nice smoothness on the palate and a rough finale. Rather cheap but it doesn’t work for me. Around € 45.

Score: 75/100
