"Not even the gimmicky seal, complete with padlock, can detract from the quality found within. A great colour here, a deep, dark, golden red-brown. Dripping with rich complexity on the nose; molasses, treacle, smoke and vegetal axle-grease notes prevail. Unctuous palate with bags of impact, a huge, sweet, treacly style. Only moderate acidity which emphasises the treacly, cigary richness. Great length. Very good indeed. 18/20"
