New released 2012 GR Chard, dangerously addicting. The butter and the settle oak are super on the palate!

Incredible 10 year old bottle with my father in law. Very strong vanilla notes, but not sweet like most.

Vintage 2012 tasted Mar 2015 - I echo prior reviewer's comments: Lithe Monterey lime/lemon custard on the nose, followed by very slight burnt butterscotch seductive beauty. Follows through well in the palate. Can't keep from sipping good times. Very well over delivers in price point.

Not as sweet as the regular kj. Still, it is what it is.

Feeling its age. Medium gold. Aromas of earthy pineapple and a mushroomy not quite corky note. Ok with pan seared pork, peaches, caramelized onions and tarragon. Should have drunk this years ago, but, alas saw no need.
