It is a superb spirit. Jeff one spirit does change in the bottle. Chartreuse.

Simply sublime. If the price is too high, just get the XO at £36 what a snip, but if you can afford this, in it's beautiful cedar wood box for special, go for it!

Of course you´re right Angus, I´m glad to know that someone understands chemistry basics and doesn´t just repeat clever phrases like a parrot..

Just so you know Jeff, spirits do actually change in the bottle over time. Its a chemical certainty, a mixture of slow oxidative reactions, internal chemical reactions and even micro crystalline reactions with the glass itself in some cases. If you've ever opened a bottle of spirits bottled many years ago you'd taste something called OBE (old bottle effect). Sometimes this improves the spirit, somtimes not. So there is good sense in keeping bottles.

Hate to break it to the above poster, but spirits don't get better (or worse) once bottled. Doesn't matter how long you keep it for, it will taste more or less the same as when it was bottled, sorry!

Wife brought home a bottle she found in a empty house. I was going to make a rum and coke with it and decided to look it up, good thing I did. It now sits in peace getting better with age waiting for a good time.
