Tasting the Classics. Back when I bought this gem for a fraction of what you can get it for today, it was suggested waiting 15 years before opening. I awoke the savage beast from it’s hibernation and a world of flavors and aromas surged forth. Black cherry, plum, vanilla, and chocolate oozed, exotic spice, tobacco, and leather scents filled my Reidel bowl. So refined, silky, and elegant all the way to the long chewy finish, it’s hard to believe this is still a baby with lots of time to mature. At 22 years old, I can’t wait to babysit another one of these beauties in it’s formative years.
