I took the aged taste claims from this new Xiaguan cake just like I would take a Gu shu claim from Tian Dren with a truck load of salt.
You just haven't tried that special edition $150 Tiandiren !
On Cloud's numbering/rating system, sometimes I am not sure where he is coming from. Example that 2005 DXS S.Mengku. I wonder if the cake I had was particularly dry or if I was expecting too much. He rated it quite highly though. Given the price, it was a decent cake, but once you get into 4 star territory, i think he should be separating the wheat from the chaff.
