Bottled 1966. Very pale with a modest orange-brown colour; 5% opaque. Muted nose, very gentle but pleasantly fragrant. Lightweight, light-bodied; elegant and floral with a hint of coffee on the inoffensive palate. Very long but dried out finish full of slightly bitter cedar wood and birch sap. 87/100. Decanted ½ hour.
