D60, brought by BMHR. Red-brown, 30% opaque. Nose caramel, and very mature. To taste very rich and unctuous. Completely mature. Heat mid- to late-palate. Lovely. Caramel throughout. Very very good.

Mature red colour, orange on the rim, 30% opaque. Balanced and very spicy nose, really attractive. Rich and thick entry, lots of mouthfilling flavours. Tobacco and golden sultanas dominate the mid-palate. Great balance from the acidity; tannins fully integrated. Hot aftertaste, but then a long and salty finish. Simply delicious. 93/100. 12 hour decant.
