The nose reminds me of SBS Caroni, but it's less sharp. It's a dirty one, not very complex.

The initial taste is a little bit thin. Almost no sweetness, dirty notes with thin start is a bad combination. I get wood and gum, the taste turns bitter with medical notes.
In the middle are more tannins, the taste is still bitter. Then I get gum, medical notes, leather and anise with wood.
The finish is a little bit spicy, again with tannins, medical notes, leather and anise with wood.

A thin and dirty Caroni, the nose was good, but the taste is not good at all.
It's not complex and too bitter. I would rate it with 68 points.

Taste initial: watery, wood, gum, tannins, medical notes, some vanilla
