About

96

A horse of a different color, this has a slightly oxidized hint but manages to maintain freshness and drive, sporting a wildly expressive set of marzipan, singed almond husk, dried orange peel, musk, apricot chutney and ginger cream flavors, all backed by a live-wire streak of green tea on the finish. Drink now through 2045. 417 cases made. –JM
