On pop and pour or poured through the Vinturi, this seemed the same. In general, it was less floral than the last time either on the nose or palate. It seemed deeper on the palate but I didn't like it as much.
Pencil shavings on the nose. A bit candied, smooth finish, weak tannins. This sucker comes in at almost 16% alcohol, but you don't really taste it. Not my typical cup of tea, but well made in its style. GOOD.
