Serge Valentin (90)

Colour: amber. Nose: rather bold and extremely honeyed and heathery, as usual. Lots of nectar notes and quite some peat coming through (unusual at that level). Quite some sherry too and also some fine oaky notes. Rather complex and surely full bodied. Mouth: starts rather drier than the current version, but with lots of oomph. Strikingly saltier as well. Complex development, with some notes of seawater, wood, smoke, and still quite some sweetness, the whole being perfectly balanced. The finish is bold and long, on honey, smoke and salt. A great classic
