    These old brown label connoisseur choice can be hit and miss, but wow what a cracker this one was. They don’t have the age on it, but likely bottled in the mid 80s? That makes many years in the bottle and quite a lot of evaporation has happened. Mine was just above the top of the label.

    I would love to test the alcohol levels on these old minis because many of them simply drink much much better than a modern 40% would. That’s the case here; wonderful old style sherry, obe in the form of dusty books, rich and oily maltiness, lovely herbal and earthy tones, dark fruits... One of the better old minis I’ve had! Lovely.

    Tried a second time. Grandiose malt with strong herbal notes, old school flavor and a nice sweetness. Perfect!
