4.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Batch #69 - 2007 vintage - Poured with surprisingly large tan head, notes of chocolate, cherry, caramel, coffee and tobacco with a little smoke. Lots of lacing on glass, soft texture, full body, smooth with alcohol well hidden. This one has aged well with very little oxidation/cardboard effects. I agree that this compares favorably with a Westy after all these years.
