    I have had this before. There were ups & downs, but it still deserved a super 88 points in my book. The cap with its seal [on this miniature] was twistable right the way round. Let’s find out whether the juice has been effected.

    N: Starts and stays with a sweet-sour milky leathery pong, moving on to a milky>malty, oaky & fruity soup with little clarity. Becomes far fruitier an hour later with sooty cream but that strange plastic/emulsion/artichoke Irish creamy pong resides.

    T: Some clear OBE/evaporation issues here but after a shaky start it consolidates with more sweet>sour milk after a dense oaky-fruity, typical G&M-profile arrival. After a while longer the milk becomes more malty but there’s no getting away from the tainted chemical-creamy pong. Shame.

    F: More milkiness leaning towards sour Mini Milk for sure. Short dusty-clean finish with a hint of spent sparkler over shampoo.

    C: Unfair sample, not scored. Shame because there’s some cracking malt here.
