I drank another session of this one with some dear teafriends yesterday. I am posting a separate review, as this session was from a different source than the sample I tried at a previous date. This one seems to have seen slightly drier storage than my previous sample. Still very good though – spicy notes aplenty in the first half of the session with some woodiness (cedar?) and a dry finish that reminds me of walnuts.
This sample had much more of a sourness in the corners of the mouth that I associate with dry storage than the first sample I had. It wasn’t a deal-breaker, but it was slightly less pleasant. Still a very good session, but I think this one benefits from a wetter storage.
