V pale brown. In the nose, wood. But not like wood in a nicely toasted cask, just wood. Like in a plank. A very weird taste in the mouth, behind the vile TCA.

Good education for me-I won't forget that smell of damp wood in a hurry!

Copper brown in colour, 20% opaque. TCA dominated nose. Gentle texture, smooth and sweet, but with little fruit and a palate dominated by the TCA. NR.
