No 100 score can be given to any part of the tasting process, as it is reserved for something more phenomenal. Best £300 spent on a dram.
Deep dark blueberry, cranberries, palm sugar syrup, strawberry pudding, and creme brulee. Lemon lime San Pellegrino water, aged honey matured in an XO bottle with XO, ripen mangoes, leather, and condensed beef stock.
Ripen plums, pitted prunes, manuka honey, hazelnuts, camphor, cinnamon, tarragon, Chinese rice wine husks, cooked Bario rice - this is slightly sweet, nutty, vegetative, and has a deep aftertaste of jammy egg custard (only the best Bario rice money can buy, at around 40 USD per 100 grams.
Lightly smoked, poached pear, with brown sugar and olive oil reduction, slightly seafood-like where lobster roe and seaweed come together.
Absolutely delicious, long-lasting, and constantly developing in flavors. Sweet orange marmalade, with dark chocolate, orange peel, candied ginger, and plenty of spice notes that I cannot fathom.
