Earthy. Wood tones. Smooth. — 18 days ago
Bright and clear dark ruby. Nose and palate of black cherry, black tea, and a bit it birchy wood. A bit of a tarry finish. Medium body, medium plus tannins, and medium acidity. Food is definitely its friend, but if you’re just looking for a Tuesday night by-the-glasser, it’s at home there, too. — 8 days ago
Wowzers. Citrus, peat, oak, nutmeg, vanilla, pepper, oloroso sherry, bramble, Black Fruit, honey, etc etc. there’s so much going on in there it’s expansive and a bit transcendent! Outstanding — 4 days ago
Blackcurrant, Young wood — 14 days ago
94+pts. Bordeaux style Super Tuscan. This really hits on all cylinders. Wind blown violets on the nose. Sensuous mouth feel, and well integrated tannins on this youngster. Black currant and cassis. Deep Tobacco notes and some cedar wood round this bad boy out. First go around with this and can’t wait to get on the wagon again ￼ — 6 days ago
Nose of briny, smokey peat that's on the medicinal side (burnt rubber). Walnut, toffee, black pepper, and perhaps a hint of raisin.
Rich, intense palate of malt, toffee, roasted almond, sea shell, and the classic medicinal, smokey Laphroaig finish. Mixed in the peaty finish is a hint of bacon, plum, and pepper.
Very much Laphroaig but more rounded and with more rich, nutty notes than the 10. Not that fruity which I would expect from the sherry finish, but still delicious. — 23 days ago
