Mic drop! How was it?
Great. Started off with notes of honey, orange marmalade and caramel notes finally treacle with a dry finish. We had it with Fois Gras stuffed Ravioli in a Mushroom Cream sauce - great pairing. Only criticism was that it should have been filtered after opening. Given the age of the cork (Estimated to be early 1900s) the crumbled cork made things a bit cloudy. Overall, it was a very cool experience to enjoy something that had spent about 100 yrs in cask and another 100 in the bottle.
