Nose: I was thinking: “I could nose this all day”… about half an hour ago… The richest, cleanest, most intense sherry with just enough tannin to poke its way through and ensure a more solid, spicy, platform around which the bounteous fruit hang. Taste: dense, both from the rich, full-bodied distillate as well as the sherry concentrate. Imagine a fruitcake reduced and reduced again and then you have some idea what is going on here: there is not just intense grape at work but juicy dates, over-ripe figs and molasses enough to power a W C Fields sketch… Finish: not sure where the middle ends and the finish begins. Certainly dries as the tannins gather further momentum but always fruit residue, withered and intense, is in close company. Balance: a work of art. The oils, though are markedly younger in style that the imperious 2013 edition. 48%.
