1938 (43%, OB, Corade France, early
This one should be roughly 45 years
old and has been opened for ‘the
Austrians’ and yours truly at
Paris’ Harry's Bar. Yippee!
Colour: gold / amber.
Nose: oh well...
this is, I mean, just amazing. Incredible
smokiness and a full tanker of acacia
honey as well as lilac, beeswax and
leather polish. Goes on and on...
ripe apricots, flower nectar, Seville
oranges, orange syrup, whiffs of seawater...
Absolutely exceptional. Gets smokier
with time (Havana smoke). Hints of
apple peelings. This nose just leaves
me speechless (who said good news?)
Mouth: amazingly lively, nervous,
fruity... Apricot jam, ripe plums,
chestnut honey, toasted brioche, high-grade
pepper... Totally fantabulous. I’m
afraid the rest will be censored by
our anti-maltoporn police department.
SGP: 845 (wazzat?)
