4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared with Craig, cheers to Craig and also to Jan and Charlotte who gave this to Craig I understand, Had this at my gaff, on third night of tasting 10-04-10 dark brown with a little rim of white bubbles. Sweet initially but then some lovely fruitiness floods through, soft in the mouth the barrel ageing is lovely. There are grapes, then dried fruit, sultana’s, raisin’s it’s a little like Christmas cake without the spice, marzipan and icing so actually not like a Christmas cake at all more like a fruit cake, whatever its like I like it, a lot.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2007 bottle via daknole on 1/25/2010.
orange brown with no discernable head though it does leave spots of foam behind when swirled.
the nose is insanely fruity... brown sugar, grapes, dates, vanilla and spicy booze.
the flavor is the same... very grape-y with defined cognac spice and a ton of sweetness. normally, it would be too much but this is a nice medium to full bodied digestif... too bad dak threw this in the middle!
