Nose: Chocolate, vanilla, caramel sauce, tobacco and apples. The same notes of cold coffee as I get on the Chivas Extra. Hints of bitter oranges?

Taste: Medium body. Peppery with a bitter-ish bite. Peel from bitter oranges, I am certain this time. It is rather sweet as well, but it is masked by the bitterness.

Finish: Medium long finish. The bitterness is now even more oak-like and peppery in character.

Comments: The bitterness/oakiness on the finish is not quite to my taste.

Score (80/100)
