Again complex and involved but in this case, confusing.
20 Years Old Tawny Port
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Initially a rootsy, fungal and chestnuty nose, giving way to rich caramel and\rhazelnut whirl.
Palate: Medium full mouth feel, with an intriguing balance between soft\rtinned peach and cream, a tangy and savoury mix.
Finish: The tangy salty notes stay the distance in what is an evolving kaleidoscope of a whisky.
Comment: Again complex and involved but in this case, confusing.
Nose: Big, stewed fruit nose. Plump, rumsoaked raisins with a pleasant cheesy\rnote behind. Farmyards once more along with a little sulphur.
Palate: Slightly bitter walnut and chicory to begin with, then some mushroom\rketchup. Liquorice, fruit cake, nuts with a fresh acidity. Good integration.
Finish: Toasted almond.
Comment: Balanced and integrated.
