[Quick festival note] In the purest tradition of Ballechin sherry. A profile that is still totally slept on, in my opinion. Big meat, big charcoal, big cooked dark fruits : it works so well. Similar to 2005's for the Whisky Barrel but maybe a bit better. 88-89
Classic Ballechin sherry. Enormous notes of black Ardenne's ham, burning firwood, wet horses, charcoal. So animal and so idiosyncratic. Tomato concentrate and burnt oregano. A splash of lemon to bring some freshness.
Extremely good again, very animal, huge notes of dark smoked ham again, beef jerky, huge charcoal influence. Cooked dates.
Long, on similar territories.
