Nose: This doesn’t smell right at all: it’s cork tainted. The distinct smell of mouldy, damp cellar dominates everything else. This is completely off.
Mouth: there’s fruits coming through in the distance, but, again, the cork tainting ruins everything.
Finish: same story.
This was simply undrinkable. Kudos to van Zuylen for being so kind to let me swap this bottle.
