We had a function upstairs tonight who I managed to persuade to take two of these bad boys.
The corks were a right bastard to remove, soft and pulpy in the middle, it didnt bode well for the wines. Bottle number one with rich and vibrant with a lovely brick red core and a rusty browning rim (oooer missus!! fnarr fnarr!!). Opulent dried fruit aromas, prunes and slightly figgy with that kind of aroma you get when you open a well stocked humidor. Bottle number two was a bit more restrained at first, but after decanting developed the same fruity nose with a touch more earthy aromas and a slightly mushroomy edge. I ended up blending the two bottles together for continuity. It went down a treat apparently. They followed it up with Yquem 90 in halves.
