Ck27: lightly brown, 40% opaque. Nose fully mature, showing raisins. Bright taste spearmint! Heat mid-palate, great length. Raisins throughout. Andy rightly noted pepper, from mid- to late-palate. JDAW, January 2013
Burnt ochre on the eye; 30% opaque. Fabulous nose, full of polished leather and beeswax. Balanced on entry, rich and full of bittersweet Seville orange marmalade. Big on the palate, lots of layers and complexity. Warming aftertaste, then a long finish of delicate honey and lemon. Very fine port. 95/100. 4 hour decant.
