n:  Wood finish drying in a room of antique furniture.  Pool water.

 

p:  Holy cow!  A flavor bomb that is sweet and complex.  Mint and Spanish cedar.  One of the best of the 25 series from that era.  

 

A-/A 

 

This adds to the irrefutable mounting evidence that 1974 was the best year in the history of everything.

n: Rich and massive.  Plums, prunes, and a hint of Christmas spices in a  room with antique furniture.

 

p:  Hot and spicy. Berry pie, perhaps blackberry/cherry mix that isn't bitter or sweet.  With the crust that didn't skimp on the butter.  It starts strong but falls apart fairly fast.  Almost holds out to an A-, but not quite. 

 

B+/A-
