    The thing that bothers me is the finish. I have rarely felt so much moldy wood in the aftertaste as here.

    Sample, Thanks Mike Loki. Fresh herby smell, minty, too. Slightly medicinal. For one reason or another it reminds me of 70's liqueur, light-emitting coloured, in a smoky living room birthday celebation with lots of drunk adults and me somewhere in a corner with my new playmobil. Sweet chocolate comes through.
    Tastewhise no success either. Chemically faked herbes, chewed on cigar, cheap candy and then some sweet, nice tobacco, finally something worth appreciating. Cinnamon, star anise, both too powerfull for my taste some mint, but nothing to be enthousiastic about. You might have guessed it, I'm not a fan. Will give it a second chance before rating but would not give over 70 right now.

    And yes, old wet wood, I agree!

    Second tasting: for a moment there is a lot of sweet fruit but the paint solvent tases over immediately. Lots of chemical sweetness after that. Tobacco - like the grain left in your mouth by a cigarette without filter. That evolves in a full blown cigar taste. This one is not for the faint of hearted. Again the overpowering cinnamon, anice, mint - none of them natural feeling but requiring an E-number.
    It's a challange, it wants you to choose, it demands an answer. That, on itself, is interesting - on the other hand, I thank the supreme Being that I don't need to digest an entire bottle of the stuff. 75 points.

      berry, sugar syrup, rubber... typical scent of long-aged sherry.

      Intense sulfur, rubber, astringency, overripe strawberries. I think the tastes are quite different. I was not good at
    • Finish

      Very very very long, and complex and mellow. No other finish is as good as this!!

    Nice old sip. Nice balance, although the intensity of the sherry could have been a little more present. A pity that apparently nobody photographed a closed bottle ..... Because it is a disturbing white spot on my shelf.

    Sherry bomb, with a dry, nosefilling smell. Great fruit basket. Intense flavor, long finish, a dram to enjoy a long evening....
