Tasting notes
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Fiendishly spiced, exceedingly complex. Excellent Oloroso presence, much more intense than the standard 18 or 25 Years Old. Distinct orange peel; zesty.
Palate: A prickly malt, with the sherry taking the lazy route, allowing some lovely peaty notes through.
Finish: Dry, too dry. Some deep roasted Columbian coffee tries to rescue it, but a little disappointing.
Comment: The finish does have the same effortless charm as the '46 or the 25 Years Old. Sensational nose.
