    [February, 2004]  I had this during the 5th Anniversary Tasting of MaRa at Limburg.

    In
    my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 87,5. 
    My
    notes state a massive sherry nose with some sulphur.  The mouthfeel is hot and biting.  The taste is all about dust-dry sherry.  The finish is of medum length and gets very bitter.  This one clearly is over the edge and should have been bottled many years earlier... The line-up of this tasting was absolutely stunning:
