    October 27, 2017 - Brief note from memory. Picked this up after having read some raving reviews lately in the Norwegian press. Quickly decided to decant it, as it felt somewhat muted and unleashed. Improved with air and temperature but it never really took of as I had hoped. Fruit driven, citrus and green apples. Great concentration and texture. Somewhat creamy in the mouth, and Long. Too much lime juice at the moment for my taste. My first bottle from this producer so I am reluctant to say beyond the fact that it is too early drinking it now. Should add that I am not the biggest fan of bdb. 90p now, 92-93 potential?
