1964 Sherry Butt
No age statement
Year of Bottling
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Another sherried character which noses old. Earthy. Bracken, humus with a fungal touch. More dried fruit than the previous ones.
Palate: Sweet and sour and also bitter. The alcohol bites. Warm and spicy. With a\rfizzy feel. Burnt caramel.
Finish: Slightly numbing. Burnt toffee. Demerara sugar caramel.
Comment: Old but not very lively. The nose is complex and fragrant.
Nose: Big and concentrated with masses of rose hip syrup cut with fresh varnish. There's hints of camphor and incense along with plenty of dried fruits/Xmas pudding and prune.
Palate: Yes, there are big tannins on show but there's a balancing rich soft sweetness. Masses of liquorice and plenty of bruised black fruits.
Finish: Long, slightly bitter and powerful.
Comment: For sherry fiends certainly but it's certainly got balance.
