I should preface this note; we were told by Laurent Perrier UK that some old stock of this they found was considered undrinkable and chucked.
Colour: quite deep, brass & gold with a hint of caramel.
Nose: Honey & butterscotch with a touch of toasted limes.
The palate is rich and a touch sherried with loads of acacia honey, butterscotch and toasted brioche. The fruit is subdued, slight notes of citrus. Nice spice and quite lovely. Rich & long.
There was a curious initial mustiness that departed with air.
