    This is so fruity and drinkable - how unexpected and flabbergasting out of this old dumpy bottle - fantastic!

    After having tasted from a different bottle (of course exactly same label) it appears that the bottle quality is varying very much. So this sample was a very lucky one.
    • Nose
      96 96
      Intense fruity nectar, apricots galore, peach, pear, sour jelly, also tropical fruits, citrusy, blond oranges, sticky honey, spices - Wow - this nose is unbelievable!
    • Taste
      95 95
      Little punchy, oily, creamy, sirupy, mellow, good sweetness, very fruity, dried apricots, tropical fruits, passion fruit, pineapple, orange drops, little hints of metallic OBE - excellent!
    • Finish
      94 94
      Medium long, warm, still very fruity, little more zesty, little herbal but not drying - great!

    What an experience! The salty, soy sauce, or according to John 'cat pee in a positive way' is very cool! And what a long dynamic finish!

    brilliant nose on tropical fruits, still fruity but more herbal on the palate, very good.

    Tasted again from a freshly opened bottle. Not like the fruit bomb I tasted from a sample before but much more smoky. Let's see if it will develop after opening the bottle. Still very good but not as stunning.
    • Nose
      92 92
      Fruity, apricots, peach, hints of tropical fruits, pretty smoky - very good
    • Taste
      92 92
      Oily, creamy, sirupy, more fruity, more tropical fruits, subtle sweetness, again quite smoky, little herbal - still very good
    • Finish
      92 92
      Medium long, warm, fruity, spicy, more herbal

    The complex, structured aroma reminds me of a top Riesling from the Moselle. the clarity of the automatic is unique. A little less power, which is made up for with pronounced fruit pressure.
    • Nose
      Peach, apricot, marzipan, some wood. Very distinctive fruit aroma
    • Taste
      White peach, apricot, rhubarb, violet, marzipan. The intensity of the aroma spike tower is enormous.
    • Finish
      Wise peach, walnut, violet, nice subtle fruit sweetness. Very long finish. Pronounced fruit pressure
