C60: Nose had a slight woodiness, and a slight bottle stink. Taste matched.

Later the nose had resolved into overwhelming VA. I wrote ‟Horrible”.

Pale colour, light centre and a pale rim. Smelly on the nose, lots of rubber bands. Sweet entry, full of sugary rhubarb. Light bodied and elegant; quite simple and straightforward. Minimal aftertatse, but a light finish based on sweet sugar-syrup that lingers quite a long time. NR.

A little stinky/VA - nail varnish taste - not good.

No one above seemed to disagree.
