I don’t do this enough… you open a bottle, you take a sip, wait a week, write a review, and then forget about it. Sometimes, after 6-9 months, it changes a lot… I also had a pour of it at one of my favorite bars in NYC last week, and it’s just as good as it was from my bottle at home.
My original review, link below, focused on brown sugar, coconut and tropical flavors on the nose and palate. After the bottle is halfway gone and eight months have gone by, the flavors have intensified on the nose, and even more floral and brown sugar cookie. The heat has diminished slightly as well. The finish is even longer than I remembered it, completely enveloping the palate before a two plus minute grand finale. Last time I reviewed it I gave it a 96, but I might nudge it higher to 96.5 for standing up so well.
