2010 vintage, purchased 11/2010; opened 4/2011.
A: Rich, dark brown with a very thin line of lace.
S: Brown sugar, damp boxwood, leather, cocoa, vanilla, hot alcohol.
T: Chocolate, biscuit malt, allspice, mace, brandy
M: Lots of "scrubbing bubbles," spritz, nice oily coat, a bit sweet
O: A bit sweet throughout. Very rich. I wager this could successfully sit in the cellar at least another year or two and only get better. Very hot, which detracts from its otherwise atractability. Good with chocolate ice cream. I bet it would also be a winner with roasted almonds or cashews. Or, a nice carbonnade, or venison (or lamb) with cherry sauce.
Don't drink it too cold or too quickly!
Not as polished a Quad as the Westy 12, but then again I've only had the Westy when cellared for twice as long as this one.
Serving type: bottle
