Tasting Notes and Scores

Allen Meadows

(with thanks to Pat Dukes). A pure, elegant and refined nose that is openly exotic with honeysuckle, mango, apricot and spiced pear plus subtle lemon peel notes. There is fine volume to the rich, full, ripe and generous medium-bodied flavors that possess a silky mouth feel due to the impressive amount of dry extract present, all wrapped in a long, sappy and utterly classy finish. This is really lovely and while there is a bit more of the exotic character than I really prefer there can be no question that the overall quality is excellent. Note that for my taste and in the larger format that I would advise continuing to hold this for a few more years first though in 750 ml format it is largely ready to go.
