From Crusting Pipe off-line:
A distinct haziness against the light became a little pool of grit by the time we had finished, suspect that this was due to transport trauma. Slightly muted nose with fennel being the strongest (OK, it was aniseed but Derek and I agreed to put different notes down). Much heavier body than the 63 and notably sweeter. Maraschino cherries abounded and a lovely warm brandy. This was a gorgeous wine by the time we'd finished with it and I was straining the grit between my teeth to get the last of it.
