Finished the remainder at D+24 hours, no formal notes other than to comment that I had marginally preferred it the previous evening. The sweet spot, i would guess, is somewhere inbetween.

I will try to get some more of this - if it can be found for under £15 (which is what i seem to recall paying), it is a veritable bargain.

a-la-Jancis - "Bravo!"
