#161

Aren’t we ALL?:wink:


#162

Well I initially missed my mouth with the PG


#163

@Herbster Perhaps you can get a straw and hoover it up?


#164

First word that comes to mind is RIPE. Man, this is ripe fruit. Blackcurrent jam…? a bit of spice. Just checked with the husband, and he said “it’s like a monster hiding behind a curtain”. I don’t know what he means!..


#165

Hate it when that happens!


#166

OH here: getting the pineapple/apple and creamy sort of texture, nice. Completely stressed by thought of pork & crackling having dashed in late to the tasting from a track speed session - famished.


#167

I’ll just stick the straw in the bottle. No more spillages…!


#168

Packs a nasal punch. Vanilla and spice are my first thoughts


#169

I LOVE Mr Inbar’s tasting notes!!! :grin:

Right now I’m just getting lots of dark, tarry fruit and spice - it’s peppery as!


#170

Agree! Some clove too, and maybe liquorice…?


#171

Massive blackberry fruit for me with some smoky notes. Also getting a lot of alcohol ‘heat’.


#172

Blueberries as well. Smells boozy.


#173

Mrs CC: ‘Packs a nasal punch’. Great way of describing it and rather better than the first words I thought of which was ‘clobbers you on the nose’.


#174

Black currents and bramble with some hot rubber and a little spice.
This was so tight a few hours ago but it’s mellowed


#175

Ingenious as always!


#176

Yep - 14.5% booze!


#177

I agree. Ripe and boozy. Life could be worse.


#178

Getting some rubber??? marker pen, prune, caramel. Love the colour


#179

Yes, definitely clove! Not to mention the vanilla thing…


#180

Merest hint of rubber but definitely some liquorice
