Community Tasting Notes 1

  • grafstrb wrote: (84 points)

    May 12, 2009 - -- popped and poured --
    -- tasted non-blind over 2-3 hours --

    NOSE: mellow and gentle: notes of petrol, butterscotch, and botrytis spice; faint tropical fruits; strong butterscotch aroma from emptied glass; has a definite aged smell, but not oxidated.

    BODY: sediment present; light amber color; medium bodied.

    TASTE: still hanging on, but mostly dead; a touch of petrol, with some spicy leather notes; weak rear palate, but still a bit of acid hangin' around; mellow; mango; chalky/limey minerals on the long finish (60-70 sec.); a bit smoky; hints of musky/spice; watery. Drink 'em if you got 'em.

    B: 50, 5, 10, 13, 6 = 84
