Remarkably interesting BDX at this price level. Especially the nose with its tobacco, cedar, and spice aromas. The palate is nearly the equal but seems a smidge closed right now. I Just opened it 2 hours prior to drinking and poured into a BDX glass about an hour before drinking. Maybe a decant would have been better for the palate but I doubt it. Its either kind of closed on the palate or merely more restrained in style? I enjoyed this very much just the same and wish this wasn't my last btl. Especially for the $20 I paid for it on release. 13% ALC. Very Pessac. Not a modern bruiser.
