Crystal brandy goblet (of course)
Rich, dark polished oak with an extra tinge of light treacle
Fan-bloody-tastic, richly aromatic with an immediate fruitiness
(bramble, forest fruits?), but it also has lots of herbal
characteristics with even a suggestion of honey. There's also
aged leather and rich red wine / LBV-style port-iness.
impressions are of a dryness, very dry, but that's not at all
bad. Then the herbal-ness and rich red wine.
Very long, extremely long and dry, all sitting comfortably right
on the back of the palate.
Amazing, stunning, "Great", what more can I say?
