    NOSE
    Dark fruit leather, oak, dark roast coffee, toffee, vanilla pod, strawberry shortcake, old leather and some baking spice and hazelnuts with a touch of sandalwood and a hint of OBE.

    This is so rich, and fresh, it’s incredible. I was expecting a ton of that musty old bottle effect to float out, but no. It’s barely noticable.

    PALATE
    Vanilla custard, butterscotch, oak, cherry and raspberry-heavy dried dark fruit, toasted bread, hazelnuts, black tea and baking spice with a hint of OBE.

    Again, the OBE on this is nearly non-existent. I’ve only had one other 70’s bottle like this and it was kept in a cool dark place (basement) the whole time. Wonder if this stayed on the floor in the back storage room of that liquor store the whole time?

    FINISH
    Med-Long -> Dried dark fruit, oak, caramel and baking spice fade to a chocolate pastry note.
