1996 Niepoort LBV

Post by RAYC » 18:13 Sat 02 Jun 2012

From half bottle, decanted and drunk over 24 hrs

Unclean nose that was not quite right. Perhaps a hint of VA as well.

Nice thick texture, chocolatey with plenty of cerise. Pleasant heat late on, which fades to leave long mint and ainseed finish.

Not obviously LBV as opposed to VP.

Would have been nice, but the nose is distractingly unattractive and there is no joy in just smelling this. For that reason: ** (86)
