    These decanters take up quite a bit of space on the shelf so I would suggest drinking it instead of looking at it - the taste is much better than the look.  These bottles can be picked up quite cheaply - which is a bonus as the contents are half decent.

    The cork fell apart as I opened it, but it still tastes pretty good - will just have to finish it suppose before it evaporates...
    • Nose
      Quite fruity on the nose.
    • Taste
      Tastes surprisingly good for a bottle that was made years ago and has been sat neglected for many a year - a pleasant dram.  Not much complexity to it but a decent dram.
    • Finish
      A pleasant medium finish with a decent mouth feel.
