($215) Light gold. Intensely aromatic nose offers a complex bouquet of smoky orchard and pit fruit aromas, along with exotic orange zest and white pepper. Deep and chewy, displaying impressively concentrated but brisk pear and bitter citrus pith flavors and an undercurrent of buttery brioche and lees. Finishes with palate-staining persistence and a subtle anise quality. As usual, a stunner. (Frederick Wildman and Sons, New York, NY)

Fine top note of refreshment and then great depth underneath. Very tight fine bead. Dry end. Great breadth. Herrumph of a broad Churchill chest. Bravo! Long.

My spontaneous impression was that the nose and aftertaste were suffering from youth syndrom while the middle taste was stunningly concentrated and typical of Winston, with a translucent layer of orange-like fruitiness and a darker layer of liquorice. After more careful tasting I am inclined to agree with those who find dosage in youth rather disturbing, but I am very attracted by this multi-facetted beauty who arouses one's interest and promises masses at the prospect of future rendezvous.
