In advance: as before all bottlings from the Platinum Selection he has not disappointed me! The smell is ever an announcement! Very earthy, wet autumn leaves, moist coal, cellar of Albau, tobacco, marzipan. The taste brings fresh bread dough which was still warm to ferment. The heather typical of Highland Park, some smoke and coal. Lovage and a good deal of licorice. Dried dates, figs and apricots. Herbaceous and bittersweet in alternation. Allspice, white pepper, star anise, juniper berries. Dark chocolate, and heather honey. Long and glowing in the aftermath, at first sweet, later spicy and burnt woody. 94/100 points Buy more? Definitely if he comes along with you for a reasonable price, as long as I have 2 bottles in stock. Merry Christmas!
