Does anybody have any tasting notes on this line up? I searched and could not find any heads up data. The price is very close so it comes down to taste. What is the difference between these 2?

The 16 DC is lighter than them both (some dismiss the 16 DC out of hand for this characteristic but it's a grave error, it's a cracker).
The 18 is the sweetest of the 4 and is quite something.
I tend to favour one over the other from time to time. I'm back on the 10 now and am enjoying it. I'll go back to the 12 however.
