Tasting Notes
Keith WoodThe colour is rich cork with a hint of coppery bronze. The nose is immensely fragrant with a herbal leafiness alongside a suggestion of figs and maybe dates. Whoa ... wait a minute .. is that really the aroma of freshly roasted pork coming through now? Surely not smoky bacon crisps too? Yes, I really believe so. Magnificent! The palate is big, massive, powerful, bold and personnifies everything from the nose including the smoky bacon crisps. Especially the smoky bacon crisps. The finish may eventually end, one day. My overall impression says I'm a hapyp man, very happy and I'm about to use that word again "Great" and 92 very bold, delightful and massive points.
