Cr82: red-orange, 25% opaque. Taste dusty, with candy showing late. Very faded. I wasn’t impressed.

Orange colour - horrible smell - light, watery, not good.

Light, pale orange colour; 10% opaque. Tobacco and satsuma on the nose, a touch hot. Oranges dominate the entry, with a big flavour full of bitter marmalade. A touch hot on the afteraste, but with a short, soft and gentle finish. 85/100.
