I would have guessed this was younger! The flavors are quite complex, rocketing from truffled banana bread on the nose, to sweet green herbs in the mouth, to an aftertaste of pear candy on the swallow. Tasted like cooling, felt like heat. Apparently this is just a lighter ferment, but I still would have expected 20+ years to infuse some more funk and darkness. The complexity is there, though — a total surprise on my Liu Bao journey. Looking forward to revisiting.
