“Wow, what an age, what a great vintage. Great HGML.Nose: intense and concentrated and of course the stark esters come first here, but nicely captured in honey and caramelized wood. Sweet and sour pineapple alongside ripe banana. A pleasant freshness comes through lemon and tangerine. A fine vinegar note at the back. Totally round, nothing stings. 91Palate: just as intense and concentrated as in the nose. Astringent at first before the esters get ready. A slightly woody bitter note or even bitter almond comes in before pineapple and marzipan take over. Light umami and licorice at the back. Also very round. 93What can I say. HGML brilliant, 35yo brilliant, ABV brilliant. Only that it almost does not matter whether 20, 25, or 30, 35 yo, because always good, is basic. pity”

“Despite the price tag on this bottle it's well worth the money. Very complex and well balanced. Love the nose and if you rest it for 15-20 minutes all flavours are released. A sweet oaky and fruity palate that continues into a very long well rounded finish. I got my hands on another bottle. 730, - euro is a hefty price, but I think it is well worth it and it can last for a couple of years of sipping.”
