Finish: floral, herbal, sweet, dry, tannins, citrus peel, marmalade, smoke, pencil shavings without the core, wood chips

Conclusion: not my cup of tea, but not bad either. It is not really there yet, and I am still a bit divided what side it will turn to. This is what I expected from Amrut when I first tasted that.
