3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Teku glass. Bottle. From the orginal verison in this BA you can feel in the aroma the hints of dry wood, which becomes quite intense. The taste is more vinous, I’ve never tried sauternes, but many times sweet Tokaj wines and you can really experience this heavy taste and aroma. Comparing to non-BA verision, this one is more complex (better) in aroma, and it calms down the hoppy bitterness.
