1984 Smith Woodhouse LBV (unfiltered)

Post by SushiNorth » 06:29 Sat 29 Nov 2008

+0 Fruity nose, but very spirity. No tannins left, lovely and smooth but with one bitter/off note (i wonder if this is what you guys mean by bottle stink). Tobacco and anise in the 30 second tail.

+10 hrs fruit remains, spririts are mostly gone. Tobacco left with them just leaving a nice mellow port. Anise flavor can still be coaxed out.

I'd wanted to leave this one for tomorrow, but everyone wanted more. That must be a good sign.
Very heavy sediment when decanting.

90/100, drink now. Totally worth the $30 I paid for it earlier in the year.
