Nose: An herb bed with parsley, thyme, dill and savory. At the beginning quite dry with a lot of salt and a slight smoky note. "Farmy Notes" in combination with earthy leather notes and a little vanilla. Compared to Haig from the seventies, there are no significant fruit flavors.
Taste: Super creamy and salty mouthfeel. The same range of flavors as the seventies in the taste - not so powerful, but even more balanced. Even creamier, more chocolaty and not so bitter.
Finish: Long and perfectly balanced! Again, fantastic chocolate flavors and pretty much identical finish, just a bit more honey and not so harsh.
Note: The nose brings with it the biggest differences. The 40% look calmer, gentle and balanced.
90 points (nose: 88 / taste: 90 / finish: 91)
