Decanted 12 hours. 30% opacity, slightly cloudy, brown-amber, yellow rim. Nose has menthol and stewed prunes. Smooth, sweet entry, alcohol. My notes say full mouthfeel but a bit flabby...these thoughts now sound contradictory! Quite quick to the finish which has a little bitterness. Apricots and some pepper.
