    August 2, 2012 - nose: cherry licorice or cherry pepsi; also, some wood, like the smell of a used smoker/bbq grill; butterscotch too.
    somewhat thin, but interesting. Cranberry juice - sweet tasting but tangy with cottony cranberry-juice feel.

    February 19, 2012 - An excellent bottle. Notes consistent with prior and others. Good fruit with a nice bit of acid/spice.

    August 25, 2011 - This is very good. Much much better than the 2004 as I have stated. Accidentally opened this when I was attempting to open another 2004 to get through that inventory. This has bright fruit on the nose and palate. Not getting old at all. Lovely.

    August 19, 2011 - Still better than the 2004. Prior notes still apply. IMHO the 2005 is much better than the 2004. Will try to drink up the remaining 2004s I have.

    June 29, 2011 - I rank this between the 03 and 04, with the 03 being my favorite. Savory and with a touch of anise, this was nice overall and would work well with food. Great value at the discounted price I paid.
