Hualien 1980

Here is one of those little aged jewels from the Hualien region on the east coast of Taiwan. Tinted khaki, the leaves of this thirty year old wulong, once rinsed, offer generous aromas of damp wood and spicy cigars. Its soft liquor flows gently on the palate spreading its sweet (beet) and metallic (prunes) flavours. The finish is deep and subtly mineral.
