“I love this oak forest. There are other unicorns besides the 1986 WIRD. You walk in a very old oak forest, fresh resin on the nose (the couch potato could also say glue), some orange keeps in the background, humus-rich forest floor on which grows damp moss. The taste continues with a pleasant bitterness for wood lovers, dried fruits keep in the background. Too much fruit here would also destroy the flair of the forest. With time in the glass, leather and vanilla come through more strongly. The finish is extremely long lasting, complemented by tobacco. Disappointed here who expects a maximum of complexity which is simply not very pronounced.”

“Rarely seen such a strong red cast. Solvent, polish and then naturally a lot of wood and bitter coffee. But to this, a perfectly inserted counterpoint of a wonderful cocoa note and dried fruit. Great. In the mouth, it is then over with the balance. Woody, bitter, furry, all very intense and nothing else. The finish is then also corresponding. The 1994 Caroni with the yellow box seems lovely in contrast.😀 With a little water the nose seems a bit fresher, then on the palate a touch of dried fruit and a touch less furry. Difficult, hammer nose 🔨🔨, but drinking is no fun.”

“Incredible intense and complex animal. The smell occupies the whole room with the nose changing considerably over a couple of hours. Wood and bitter notes are very dominat alongside some fruits. All in all not unlike a very long aged Demerara.”
