- 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.
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.
Dark sugars, toffee, almost overripe strawberries. Some compote again and then leather. Some marmelade of strawberries and blueberries. Thin on the palate.
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.
Rich, spicy nose. Vanilla, toffee, caster sugar, caramel.
Also a spicy taste. Pepper. Fruity side with some pineapple, peach.
Creamy on the tongue, something sticks. Medium to long.
