Tasting Notes

Deep, dark tawny-brown colour with green and yellow in the rim. It's very concentrated, reduced and old, showing the density and thickness of evaporation in cask. The bouquet is of toffee, with some raisiny, almost muscat-like overtones. The palate is very concentrated, dense, syrupy and sweet, the depth of flavour is wonderful and the power of the wine awesome. Its length is prodigious and the power is sustained - it lasts and lasts. A gorgeous and dramatic fortified wine. This really is the nectar of heaven. Tasted December 2019. Huon Hooke
