3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle given to me as an extra by GT, thanks! Perfectly clear red pour with light orangey hue and a few spirals of white foam. Lots of sherry oxidization in the aroma, I could certainly feel the age here but it aged with tremendous grace. Notes of honey, burnt toffee, madeira with just the right level of booziness to convince you you are drinking a fine strong beverage.
