3 hrs double decant. Just started to open up. Lots of primary aroma and taste with some secondary leathery and tobacco. Nice light orange hue.

Brilliant on first opening. Fun comparison of 98's. This one was great from the start but slowed down as the night progressed. Still a beauty.

A touch softer and broader. Lovely rise and red fruit. A touch of tobacco. Decent length
