3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flaske delt med Odd Gunnar og Asle Bjørn etter bokpresentasjon på Cardinal juni-15: brunrød rav med kort skum. Litt gymsokker i aromaen, men smaken er riktig så fin - nøtter, ristet brød + litt mørk sjokolade. Fyldig, smaksrik og tørr. Et godt eksempel på en ellers litt kjedelig stil.
