    It’s a pity that I only have one over-oxidized share in my hand, and I can’t feel the state of this wine at its peak. I hope I can collect one and taste it carefully. When I drink it, it reminds me of SV's Glenenburgie 1976. The fruity enhanced version is also elegant in the morning mist, and the richness of twelve single coats makes me, a tiger who likes rich and enthusiastic, stop for it. Smell the roses.
    • Nose
      Watermelon-flavored bubble gum, yellow peach, mango, citrus, cucumber, frosted cream cake, Suntory oolong tea, sesame and sunflower seeds, without the stimuli of alcohol.
    • Taste
      Hearty and elegant. Long, light herbs set off standout malt crackers, mango pineapple marshmallows, ginger ale, refreshing salads.
    • Finish
      Medium-length, fruit acid, woody.

    Smell: Very light alcohol stimuli, orange fudge, ripe citrus, golden melon, ears of wheat, geranium, humidor.

    Palate: Intense and distinct old wine style, herbal, licorice. Juicy frozen autumn pears, fruit punch cocktail.

    Rhythm: Long and balanced. Yellow fruit, light wood, very slightly bitter.

    Overall Comment: The interesting thing about this cask is that between 1980 and 1985, Buna Haben was as difficult to survive as most other distilleries, so it was shut down between 1982 and early 1984. This cask can almost be considered a cloth The first casks that were redistilled in Nahaben (because it was distilled in January), can be said to be the beginning of Nahaben's life to the present. It is very difficult to find (almost ten barrels) of Buna Haben distilled between 1980 and 1985. It is of great significance to explore the style of the original distillation through this barrel. I've had quite a few old Bunahaben wines, and I can't say how amazingly delicious they are, but the style like the big yellow fruit in the 90s is also very pleasing. This barrel has a very strong old wine style, which can be compared with some of the old OB regular bottling of Buna Haben, and many consistent characteristics will be found.

    My retail price is 2480 yuan including postage and tax, for your reference.
