Honeyish in the nose. I sensed some flatness and asked if anyone thought it was corked. Nobody did. As my guest Mark, an audio expert, put it very cannily, this lacked mid-range. I thought this was a brilliant description: the bass was there, with the dense body one would expect, and the high top notes, with tobacco and light fruits, but there was none of the middle that would have made this really outstanding. A disappointment; but as Jay says, on another night it might have been outstanding.
