Intriguing.

Very striking on the nose - but more like a poweful dry wine, green and stemmy. Didn't know how to evaluate this, but slipped down quite nicely. Others will have more profound thoughts on it, i'm sure.

Dark, brooding; fine nose and great purity - quite a beast..!

Pleasant to drink now, but when it closes down it will probably be untouchable for decades.

The makings of a classic I think - one to lay down for your grandchildren.

RLC’s Ni09 cask sample. As one would expect, dark and 100% opaque. Stalky, and just so young.

Black, very grapy on the nose. I found it impossible to change gear at this stage in the evening to give a good report.
