Light is true with this release. The traditional flavours are kind of missing, so no tar and rubber, which I have later come to like. The nose is woody with vanilla, varnish and banana. The palate is woody and kind of fruity with vanilla and chocolate and a light mineral note. The finish is medium long and woody with chocolate, vanilla and orange.
