A bottle ullaged to mid-shoulder. Dark reddish-brown in colour, 30% opaque. Lots of bottle stink on the nose mixed with turpentine. A better palate than nose, but the palate is still tainted and spoiled. The aftertaste is hot, leading to a finish of tainted brown sugar. Not Rated. 15-Dec-16. Decanted 1 hour.
