another old jack…



Last time out this wasn’t so bad. This time, if anything, it’s even nicer, losing any overt oxidative notes!

There was a satisfying release of air around the cork as I began to slide it out – positive pressure behind the cork – impressive for one so young(!) In the glass, at first, there was the smell of coffee and chocolate to offset the usual funk of a newly opened old-timer, slowly it became more about leather and soil. Super-silky, linear and mineral with a very sneaky length indeed – yum! It was at least an hour before I, once more, had the glycerol impression from the lst bottle…
Rebuy – No Chance!

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?

        Thanks, clear now. I assume “last time” referred to the previous post.
