Thank you Kasumi no Chajin for the sample!
Well, work has finally calmed down and my sudden strong espresso craving has subsided. So, I finally have the time to enter the notes that I have for my side-by-side tasting of “new” and “old” Golden Fleece today! I’m pretty sure that they must be different years or something, but I think I will email Verdant to ask (I still haven’t done this).
Instead of trying to figure out what my rough notes meant, I’ve decided to just put them here as is:
“Old” Golden Fleece- elegant, whiskey, peanuts still covered in cellulose, silky texture, Morel mushrooms, sour.
“New” Golden Fleece- unripened banana aroma, earthy, mushroom, vanilla, wet forest floor, foam on leaves.
I remember liking them both very much, and I am unable to come to a strong opinion as to which I prefer.
