Nose
Clean and relatively light,we're almost back to the 1989. Delicate and again the give away citrus notes. Here it's orange peel. Some bitters,wood oils, redwood. Good rye influence.
Palate
Lighter in style. Once again there's very pure mintiness. rhubarb, barberry, acidity. Good grip.
Finish
Cherries.
Comment
We're back to where we started.

Nose
Reminds me of the 1990. Quite a light aroma. That bitter edge lurks. The rye comes through but is balanced with that trademark sweet honey.
Palate
Easy going but the layers of mint, bitterness and sweetness unfurl over the tongue. The wood adds some decent grip too.
Finish
Sweet with a little,good,sour edge.
Comment
This is a sipper,to be enjoyed slowly.
