    [January, 2013]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 135 Euro in October, 2012.

    [December, 2013]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 116 Euro in January, 2013.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 90 and 92,5.  My notes state a truly complex and multi-layered dram that is perfectly balanced.  Dangerously quaffable...

    Nose: Starting on fruits seasoned with wee cinnamon – stewed peaches, apples, some sweet honey dew. Woody? Nope. the wood is not very prominent here, and this is indeed surprising.
    Palate: Spicy, then malty, and then enters the sherry goodness. Sultanas, the stewed fruits from the nose, and some chocolate and Marzipan mixed with wood. Very good, and very well integrated.
    Finish : Long on chocolate, cocoa, and some fruit.Bottom line:

    Wonderful stuff! I want more. Great blending by DC. A real stunner at the top of its class.
