Yum!
This is a beautiful, classy, mature Southern Belle...
Opens with earthy, gamey, poopy notes on the nose. After awhile some interesting nuances of black tea, old leather and mocca add in.
On the palate this is amazingly fresh and well balanced. Black cherry, soft cinnamon spice, cola, antique-shop and a creamy chocolate-walnut swirl make that this is, IMHO, a stunning performance given its humbler pedigree and respectable age.
Really very good.

This is the 2001. Dusty, earthy , herbal aromatics. Still some heat. I don't love the balance. Hot to me. Tannins are still hanging on at the back.
