Tasting notes

Lion's | 18-01-2013


Colour: pale amber.

Nose: rather different from its twin, showing more OBE and more herbal and leathery touches, less rounded but certainly not less interesting. Beef bouillon, cigar box, metal polish, wax polish, a little parsley, banana skin and finally hints of old cough syrup, eucalyptus and even camphor. Maybe a tad less coherent than the ‘regular’ G&M and less polished, but certainly as entertaining and maybe even more complex.

Mouth: I was afraid this one would be too dry on the palate but greatest of news, it’s even less so than its sibling. The attack is unexpectedly vibrant and even big, and we get more or less the same flavours as on the nose but with more dried fruits and rather less ‘phenolic and resinous’ notes. Date liqueur, sweet liquorice, old orange liqueur, nougat, quinces… Actually, it’s amazingly fruity! Incredible after so many years… Better stop now.

Finish: long, longer than the other one in any case. Hazlenuts, oranges, cloves and various honeys.

Comments: this one is quite incredible.
