Martin__ (76) - POLAND - MAR 1, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2017 Bottle, 2016 batch. Poured into the Teku. Aroma: noble alcohol note, vanilla, a hint of nuts, a lot of raisins with a caramel twist and some port wine notes as well. Pours very hazy, dark brown, with minimal head reducing very quickly. Medium to heavy sweetness, heavy bitterness (coming also from the alcohol), port wine (wow!) bourbon, caramel, figs, raisins. Very good. Delicious! Full bodied, slick. Completely flat. Long aftertaste, mainly bourbon, vanilla, some prunes and raisins. Long oxidized alcohol (port wine). This is an exquisite beverage but I guess it has to spend some more time in a bottle. For now - 9,2 out of 10. Very good, but not the best. EDIT: found another 2016 version - its so perfect. An extra soy sauce in aroma. Might be the case of month it was aged. Wow. Suggestion - it all depends on the particular barrel and the age it spent laying in the bottle IMO.
