Warming, soothing alcohol burn. Sweet, vinous finish. Lovely! daveshawley (27) - Doylestown, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 14, 2011
2010 vintage from Wegman’s for Valentine’s Day. Poured deep, almost opaque, brown with a nice foamy head that dissipates into a thin, off-white lasting froth. Initial aroma is vinous, the rich wine is obvious. Other notes of sour fruit, sweet but woody. Taste is sweet to start that quickly turns sour and tangy. Palate is medium and a little fizzy - not nearly as thick as I had expected. Finish is long, tart, and very enjoyable. The alcohol warmth is noticeable throughout but never overwhelming. I’m lucky that this is so expensive otherwise I might be tempted to drink it regularly! Abio (1868) - BERMUDA - FEB 10, 2011

so nice, this one!
one of the best in the world.
A good performance from dubuisson.
Great deep taste, aroma and an absolute long finish.
One point to say is that you’ll taste the strong alcohol in it! drowland (8827) - Georgia, USA - JAN 29, 2011
Bottle thanks to TheCheeseMan! Slightly sour aroma with a big sweet malty flavor full of nuts, yeast, and more. ContemplateBeer (2089) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 24, 2011
Aroma of brown sugar, nougat, brandied fruit and sour cherries. Appearance was ruddy brown with tan head. Flavor matched the nose, but with lots of oak notes; the sourness imparted by the barrels was more apparent upon warming, and was also quite boozy. Palate was fizzy and bubbly. A pleasure to drink, just not everyday.
