"A touch of lemon yogurt on the nose, but also very buttery, some rum raisins and a fair amount of honey. Lots of spices on the palate! Is this all the result from the rye wood? Plenty of pepper, some ginger and a bit of cardamom, but then it becomes sweeter and more in line with the nose. A touch of orange peel too."
