3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours gold with white head. Aroma is bourbon, acidic, earthly and apple. Flavour is sour, bourbon, wood. Something from the original is missing but the aging has brought some earthliness, wood, vanilla and bourbon into the palette. Very good but perhaps not as good as the original.
