From an ullaged bottle. Deep honey colour, slightly cloudy. Honey and rosemary nose, a touch of orange blossom - very dusty and slightly dirty with lots of higher alcohols. Sweet and light-bodied palate, lots of orange blossom honey - elegant but very slow in delivering the power of honey and flowers. A flash of volatility on the aftertaste before the long finish of honey and cedar wood. Very oxidised, but very pleasant nevertheless. 84/100. Drunk 15-Apr-15.
On Wednesday 15th April 2015 Wolfgang, Alex, Tom, Enrico, Maggie, my father and I met for some old claret at Otto’s, 182 Gray’s Inn Road WC1X 8EW.
