Tasting Notes

Nose

Soft. Light sherry. It's like a box of spent matches next to a slumbering peat fire.

Palate

Sweet, almost oily, start then comes a lovely interplay between pulpy fruit and dry sooty smoke.

Finish

Very long. Smoky chimney.

Comment

Slightly sweeter than the 1977 but equally good. The sulphury note lets it down.
