Member Ratings and Notes
Packed full of oranges, wrapped in chocolate, and darn enjoyable. Rather sweet caramel.  Every sip leaves me with lingering cocoa, and brings me back for more.  When you want something like this, this'll hit the spot.  B/B+

(Willie Tait insists that this should be tasted with cheddar cheese... gotta remember that one for next time!)
Very close to the New 12 but the palate is more earthy and the bitter aspects are diminished.     

Nose:  Oranges yes, but a little faint and dry.


Palate:  Very thin.  Something like unsweet caramel.  Not much here for me.  Not at all offensive, but also nothing to really enjoy unless you don't want to taste scotch in your scotch.
