Yes - good - my favourite of the Taylors, and in fairness would probably have blown me away if i had not been tasting it alongside the G/F 66s and 70s. But its not as big or opulent as those, and to me slightly in their shadow. Not as much heat on this bottle as with previous bottles i have had, and more fruit actually ****+

Soft red colour, showing a touch of burnt sienna; 70% opaque. Strange nose, a little soapy - not attractive. Sweet entry, but with a harsh undertone and soapiness showing through the fruity palate. Not attractive on the palate. Heat shows on the finish. Served blind, and guessed to be the Taylor. 85/100
