“The bottle definitely needed some time to breath/settle in/how ever you want to call it. Still the KFM profile is quite different from other Versailles (especially at this comparably young age) with more fresh notes ie green apple and pear on the nose. Compared to the 2002 TCRL KFM, this one feels more dark and dominated by wood notes. Also I tend to prefer the fruitnotes in this one, leaning more towards red/dried fruits in my mind. Both surprisingly so, as the TBRC is two years younger and bottled at significantly lower ABV.”

“Great bottling. Needs some time in the glass, then shows a nice mix of fruit, honey, chocolate and wood. Wood influence is already amazingly present”

“This is not for me a typical kfm. Despite the 16 years, it seems fresh and fruity and less spicy-woody-roasty.First I have to think of grappa and have grape with quite a lot of green apple in the nose. The freshness also comes from lemon. Behind that I detect an almost floral honey sweetness. Young wood brings in some spice and out the back it seems almost herbal. Not incredibly complex, but that doesn't make it complicated either.Palate: yes, we're getting closer to a Diamond here. Forebodingly bitter, spicy and toasty. Seems a bit artificial and burnt with decent salty iodine, some maggi and anise. Neatly peppery as well. The fruit recedes somewhat behind it, but finds itself green apple.Solid in the end, but not a good representative of its kind.”
