Wow, was für ein Alter, was für ein toller Jahrgang. Toller HGML. Nase: intensiv und konzentriert und natürlich kommen hier als erstes die krassen Ester, aber schön eingefangen in Honig und karamellisiertem Holz. Süß-saure Ananas neben reifer Banane. Eine angenehme Frische kommt durch Zitrone und Mandarine. Hinten dran eine feine Essig-Note. Total rund, da sticht nix. 91 Gaumen: genauso intensiv und konzentriert wie in der Nase. Zunächst adstringent bevor sich die Ester bereit machen. Eine leicht hölzerne Bitternote oder auch Bittermandel kommt hinzu, bevor Ananas und Marzipan übernehmen. Hinten leicht Umami und Lakritze. Auch sehr rund. 93 Was soll ich sagen. HGML genial, 35yo genial, ABV genial. Nur dass es fast egal ist, ob 20, 25, oder 30, 35 yo, weil immer gut, ist grunds. schade

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.
