This was the first of the series, and was launched in September 2002. The two casks came from the Macharnudo Albariza vineyards. Colour: fluo yellow. Nose: big bold tropical fruits (kumquats, passion fruits) and lots of other fruits like green plum. Havana tobacco, leather… Some great peat shines through, with white pepper. Then we open another drawer, with lots of waxy notes. The peat (the ‘farmy’ version) strikes back, with even some cow stable notes. We also have some perfume (Chanel N°5) – Paris Hilton anyone? Lots of crème brulee too. Mouth: rubbery attack, followed by lots of crystallised orange, Grand Marnier, Mandarine Imperiale liqueur. Then we have some rather bold peat, overcooked coffee, lapsang souchong tea (smoked).
Again lots of crystallised fruits, dried orange… Extremely satisfying and compact, if not monstrously complex. The finish is very long, on Grand Marnier (the Cuvée Centenaire, that is). Wow, this one is the winner for me.
