“No rum for the sober palate. The Versailles profiles need with me 3-4cl until they arrive. First impression was not great with all. Later, however, they unfold some complexity. This one still seems slightly watered down.”

“A typical Versailles, yet very astringent and dry on the palate, in contrast to the nose.”
