Originally ex Corney & Barrow on release
Tasting note: I hadn't tried this since the big RC tasting in 2007 but even in the interim 10 years the nose remains relatively inexpressive though with extended airing, subtle aromas of black fruit, hoisin, spice, underbrush, anise and violets emerge. The palate impression is one of understatement as the refined, delineated and manifestly classy flavors offer incredible breed and fantastic complexity on the focused, linear and hugely long finish. This brilliant effort will live for decades and remains quite youthful and while it could be approached now it is clearly still very much on the way up. Tasted three time recently with entirely consistent notes.
