Can't get hugely excited.
1977, Sherry Wood
No age statement
Nose: Fennel seed and lemon. A twiggy, slightly grubby note.
Palate: Very sweet in the centre with some demerara sugar, slivered almond.
Comment: Can't get hugely excited.
Nose: Assertive. Aniseed. Artichoke. Acacia flowers. Green fruit. Vetyver. Lingering peat in the back. Straw. Alcohol tingles.
Palate: Sweeter than expected. Oily. Thick. Very refreshing. Grated lemon. Liquorice mingled with toffee.
Finish: Peppery. Dry. Bitter chocolate.
Comment: Not a model of subtlety but a well-knitted character, in the light heavyweight category.
