Tasting Notes

Nose

Curious Oriental food note (chow mein?) some coconut and tarry smoke.With water it's all change,with cleaner and zingy lime notes.

Palate

Savoury olives and artichoke,sweet and woody,with a distinctive peaty and earthy underlay.

Finish

Quite long; rustic,with some salt and pepper.

Comment

A solid performer but not in the same league as the 1982 25 Years Old.
