Exquisite and delicious!!
Beautifully balanced between fresh, vibrant apple, lemon peel notes and brioche, biscuit, toasted almond, and pastry notes, with some delicate bruised pear characteristics revealing a bit of bottle age.
Mousse is fine-grained, persistent, and well-integrated. So good! — 5 days ago

2018 vintage. Explosive but overtly chunky vs deeply grippy. Tasted after being opened approx 30 mins. Needed 7-10 hours of serious airing or a dedicated, triple-decant + air + time. Maybe gets to 9.6 with all that? Body medium-heavy w/o being syrupy. — 4 months ago
I think @Josh Morgenthau really nailed this note: recently finished Taylor Fladgate 20 yr which was always a favorite, but I picked this up in Duty Free and was blown away. Similar notes & flavor profile as TF, but the mouthfeel really sets this apart & above. So elegant, so refined, such great tension & harmony - the defined acidity highlight & elevate intense flavors.
