BOW (84)

Serge Valentin (83)

Colour: gold. Nose: quite curiously, this one is less expressive than the 10 yo at first nosing. Granted, we have lots of bananas, but… wait, now it’s opening up, with quite some old roses, strawberries and lychees and maybe a little musk. Goes on with rubbed orange skin, ginger, rosehip tea… Very fragrant in fact – but you have to like that. Lacks maybe a little reserve (yes, Serge speaking). Mouth: sweet and very rich, with an enjoyable attack on buttered salted caramel and cooked strawberries, bananas flambéed, rum, heather honey… Quite some apple compote with cinnamon as well, Turkish delights, crystallised fruits… Almost extravagant, too bad it wasn’t bottled at 45 or 46%, there’s just a slight ‘sluggishness’ at the finish.
