Tasting notes
Taster   Peter Mulryan
Nose: Furniture polish and mixed spice.
Palate: The familiar vinatge DNA of cream soda, melting into vanilla toffee.
Finish: An unusual vigorous climax to a stunning offering.
Comment: Don't know how Barry Walsh keeps this standard up year on year, the most robust MVR in ages. Bravo!
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Subtle and complex. Very spicy with sandalwood, discreet oakiness, cereal and peach. In time even more spice and a lovely juiciness.
Palate: Long and very perfumed with layers of flavour: lilac, oak, toffee. Finer than the others.
Finish: Long, spices, oak.
Comment: Leave a glass of this to breathe for 24 hours and you're blown away by its complexity.
