Spectacular, apricot stone and honey. Much of the raw sugar has left.

1976 was almost fluorescent orange on release so many years ago now. Today it still has that telltale orange gleam but it's developed so beautifully. Orange peal, fig, honey, earth, mango, hazelnut, and on and on. 375ml still very fresh. Impressive.

Disappointing. Brown color. Sea/Ocean/Crustacean nose with some molasses. Smoke, cigar petrol and a slight note of apricots. Little too sweet for weight on palate. Past prime.

Amazing shiny copper color. Dried flowers on the nose with hints of saffron. Nice structure - good acidity and not too sweet. Flavors of candied orange peel and saffron with a small hint of caramel.
