Baby killing. 2 - 3 hours of decanting necessary. Not super expressive on the nose, but somewhere between toffee and petrol. Mouth is dominated by pineapple-like acidity and a luxurious lush viscosity. Alcohol peaks through at the end, which makes me think it needs another couple of years.

Gave this a 3 hour decant and it just started to open up. Lots of acidity and citrus.
