Nose: let’s be quick, this a slightly less tobacco-ed, and slightly rounder and fruitier version of the previous one. Very lovely again. Let’s move on…
Mouth: same, and once again it’s a slightly jammier one. Otherwise, same winning combo, with prunes, raisins, jellies and jams, complex spice mix, oranges (all of them) and then a small earthiness and grapefruits. Excellent.
Finish: long and… excellent. A little pepper and ginger in the aftertaste, which ‘lifts’ it. Always great not to have a phat and cloying aftertaste – unless you’re ready to go to bed).
Comments: what could I add? These are the ones, just like the 1971/1972s.
