N- While the 1991 breath its way up over the years, this 1994 that distilled a year before being mothballed doesn't seem to benefit with about the same time spent in the bottle. Still bright and citrus-y with spicy oak hitting the nose, green-y and leaf-y with maltose and barley sugar. Strawberry milk with nuttiness, as well drift of mints and crushed peppers. At time, soft with wee much oak prevail and feel rather on a decline compared to 5 years ago. (86/20)
P- While few notches down on aroma, still broad on palate. Vanilla and honey with juicy sweet oak, wheat-ish, spicy sweet with underlying polished dryness that highly savourable. Evolving well and get creamier eventually with fragrant oak pulsing softly. (88/22)
F- Long, flowery, juicy oak and warming spices. Waxy, crisp. Cracked peppers and raisinets. (87/21)
Weighted Rate- 84pt Not quite what it was.
