100% Barrel; 2/3 new oak; 2 parcels 90 & 60 year old averages; Pretty dark fruits with lots of spice and roasted coffee notes in the nose. Incredibly lush, weighty and complex in the mouth, grilled meat, savory spice and a sweet candied core, lovely rustic flavors. The finish is spicy with underbrush, toasty oak and black currant fruit in in silky format. This is great, drinks like Grand Cru.
