    promising multi-layered nose and very mediocre taste. unexpectedly meager for 26 years
    • Nose
      89 89
      fresh citrus, floral with a touch of furniture polish, prunes in chocolate
    • Taste
      85 85
      mustard, dry tree in butter
    • Finish
      88 88
      dry wood, black pepper and tartar, quite long and pleasantly pepper, as if eating Indian cuisine

    Blindtasting Nose: smells of red wine barrel when pouring - from the glass, sweet oily dense and again a light sour (red) wine note, with more time in the glass red sour berry fruit, some malt, caramel, cherry jam, Palate: Chocolate, milk coffee, MonCherie, rather sour fruity but no barrel dominance, slightly dry - astringent, slightly alcoholic - prickles - with a larger mouthful he can sometimes sting something. Looks clean and well done - no false note and middle-aged (from the flavors) - when chewing the oak comes through beautifully - bright, fresh, with fine spices finish: relatively long, oak, very delicate bitter, warming, chili, wax, some mint Comment: - reminds me of my Wiebers Deanston if I chew it for a long time (cooked sweet apples and pear with custard) - could well be a young CS BC Deanston with wine barrel / (dry) sherry - not significantly above 10yo - maybe NAS

    Buttery and salty, just whiffs of smoke
