    Day 5 of Lockdown - 22nd March - We been exploiting the earth ???? over decades. This is a period when it taking its breaks. Grounded flights, less car, less carbon emissions, less war (except those alien minded north korean). This CV19 has stranded almost everyone to limited radius. So we have plenty of time to think ????, plenty of time with family, get to know your neighbors, dug out old photos to be amused at. Life move on, just differently. A wake up call.

    N- Superb Bourbon-ish to begin with, corn syrup, maple and feel like Kentucky in Glasgow. Gunpowder charred notes, phenol and wood shaves comes along, followed by vanilla creme brulee, minty, liquorice and always with the layer of ot chili peppers. Although nothing spectacular, but get more expressive overtimes and lasted well in the glass. (87/21)

    P- Lovely sweet tropical fruits with solid oak and strength carrying it through, sprays of spicy mist with guava and apple emerged. Just as the nose, lasted well and allowing you to sip at your fine slow pace. (88/22)

    F- Long, direct. Feel rum-ish now with waxy oak. Spicy, dry and fruity. (87/21)

    B/B- 87/21
