The nose is hugely oaky with caramel and toffee. The palate set me back with an acid attack. It's sharply acidic, then yeasty. With a bit of air, caramel notes emerge, but it's still really sour. The finish gets back to some of the candy notes but still has that acidic sharpness.
I really didn't care for this. The nose is nice, but the palate is way out of balance with the heavy acidic notes. This was a gift shop bottling, and I've heard that some of the export bottlings are better, but this one is seriously flawed, and for the price, that's a real crime.
