In der Nase zuerst Harz und Hustensaft, sehr komplex! Gaumen: überraschend mild, exzellent eingebundener Alkohol, kräftig würzig und wieder sehr komplex. Die medizinischen Noten stehen im Vordergrund. Nachklang: der Rum verblasst sehr langsam. Die medizinischen und grasigen Noten herrschen vor. Der medizinische Charakter dominiert den Rum und macht ihn zu etwas besonderem, top!

I had forgotten that I had this one in my cabinet, so when I found it yesterday I just had to give it a go. From opening the bottle the flavours just keep oozing out and I left it for 15 minutes to rest. The nose comes off very fresh and fruity with a hint of alcohol. A very complex nose with a grassy/floral note to it. The palate was another surprise. Complex yet very well integrated alcohol releasing a ton of flavours. A fruity warm experience with cinnamon and licorice. The finish is ridiculously long and nice. Reminds me of the smoothness of the 1972 Courcelles I also have.

Wow! Was für ein voller, würziger und runder Duft steigt da in die Nase. Bei dem Würzigen dabei ist Vanille, Anis und vielleicht ein Hauch Maggi. Aber dann auch zugleich eine angenehme frische Süße von getrockneter Johannisbeere und Rosine. Auch ein feiner floraler Duft von Veilchen scheint mir. Das begeistert schon mal. Genau so schön geht es auch am Gaumen weiter. Vollmundig, intensiv, würzig. Das leichte Anis ist zu süßer Lakritze geworden. Malzige Noten geben etwas holziges. Den Hauch von Zitrus bekomme ich mit Cola. Die Fruchtigkeit durch getrockneter Pflaume und Brombeere. Der Alkohol ist wunderbar eingebunden. Der würzige Abgang mit einem Hauch Zuckerrohr in Tee übergehend ist ein würdiger. Ein ganz toller Tropfen im besten Alter.
