    Since you have set on the wood rail. The trick also worked on the nose. But at the back he is too modern and not set enough. Too little body, but the PLV is ok. Because the age is praiseworthy.
    • Nose

      Bright freshly cut wood with vanilla notes and a little honey on the banana. Standard and short explained, but very appealing. Great nose. Respect.

      A little bit of everything but nothing enough! Sherry? Quite successful on the palate just too flat expanded. What he has is a dense network of malt and spice. The palate does not hold what the nose has promised.
    • Finish
      81 81
      Medium to rather short. It remains fruity and spicy but somehow minerally simple. Too bad he did not last. Unfortunately, do not convince me. Modern standard. PLV good.

    Reminds me of slightly burned steak (meat). The aftertaste is better than the initial taste. Would have been better at a higher alcohol percentage.
