Med.light gold color; very attractive very spicy/floral/GV/carnations light white pepper slight earthy
very perfumed nose; lightly tart/tangy some grapefruity/floral/GV/lemony very light white pepper/spicy
flavor; very long lightly tart/tangy strong GV/floral/lemony/grapefruity very light white pepper finish;
not as much white pepper and not as intense GV as the other GV's but quite a pretty GV. $30.60 (BWS)

I was rather dissapointed in this Turk. Not nearly as good as the one we had a few weeks ago. OTOH, the Turk R was excellent...at a cheaper price.
