    It is nice but just a little bit to old. The oak dominates to much but it is still very nice. I think the prices nowadays are more reflecting the fact this is from the 60's. Is it stunning: not really.
    • Nose
      Mixture between old leather books, marmelade, plums. Some strawberries, blueberries and apple compote. Toffee and sugar but I think it is all a bit restrained. That is to bad, it starts very nice but then holds back. Toffee, caramel/fudge is dominating the nose. Spices to finish it all.
    • Taste
      Dark sugars, toffee, almost overripe strawberries. Some compote again and then leather. Some marmelade of strawberries and blueberries. Thin on the palate.
    • Finish
      A bit old leather, thick mouth coating and then oak. Something I tend dislike lately as my palate seems to protest at bit. With water the fruits rise a little bit but it feels like this was bottled past its peak.

    The sample was a bit cloudy, probably because it was already open. I doubt that the taste has affected.
    • Nose
      Rich, spicy nose. Vanilla, toffee, caster sugar, caramel.
    • Taste
      Also a spicy taste. Pepper. Fruity side with some pineapple, peach.
    • Finish
      Creamy on the tongue, something sticks. Medium to long.
