    Smell: Very light alcohol stimulation, iconic honey style, bergamot, apricot peel, ripe Nanguo pear, rich malt aroma, light wood, some old Sauternes feel.

    Mouthfeel: Syrupy, pronounced marmalade, plum, apricot and other aromas on the nose are amplified, rich spice, elegant wood.

    Rhyme: Medium length. Yellow fruit, nuts and a touch of white pepper, very slightly bitter.

    Overall comment: This is the Cperdonich 1972 style barrel bottled by Duncan Taylor among the modern Caperdonich I have ever drank. If you like "juice", please don't miss this barrel.

    My retail price is 2250 yuan including postage and tax, for your reference.
