Bottle @ BVeryís. 2013 vintage. Deep brown pour with a tiny head. Rich oatmeal raisin cookie and chocolate syrup. A touch of vanilla. Sweet without being cloying. Flavor is pretty sweet with a bit of roasted malt bitterness. Some umami. Nicely mellowed, not hot or difficult to drink. Oily and substantial fat. 2013 Eclipse seems to be drinking well right now. Good stuff.
