Opened for a couple of hours and unless it is closed down (and I'm not sure that is the case), its time to drink up. Medium body, fruit deminishing tobacco, bit of pepper finishing with a metallic tinge. Decent with dinner but nothing much to go back for.

Having a few of these back home as well, and generally a fan of L'Arrosee, I pooped another one last night.

Gladly, it was better. Nose was less muted. Good seconda notes development, mushrooms, dark and dried fruits, more balanced. On the palate, much the same, medium bodied if slightly structured but what concerned me was that same metallic (more aluminum than iron) finish that was evident. So less of a panick to drink the rest and a decent performance but lacking charm and structure.

I've now decided to give you your degree in WWs' "Fat-Finger 101" class, as a matter of fact add with honors. Tink the spelling youse were looking for was popPed. No crap. WW [img]/ubb/wink.gif[/img]
