From bottle. Served a bit cold but flavors were substantial from the get go & fill out as it warms. Raisins, grass, lovely toasted malt & some oak are what I get. The balance swings, sways & teases between the bitter & the sweet. Well managed & enticing. Hope I don't have to wait until the 50th for another.
