    my fourth bottle, again full of pleasure. But a small one: This bottling by Rachel Berrie is a bit overlaid, oak-spicy and no longer quite as impressive as the bottlings by Billy Walker previously enjoyed in 2017 and at the beginning of 2018.
    Took a lot of time and a good portion of water (reduction to approx. 45-46%) to elicit the aromas of the Oloroso and PX barrels

    Also in the 2019 version, a monster sherry dram.
    • Nose
      Sweet and voluminous, grapes, sherry, plums, lots of spices, a real spice cabinet, the oak stays elegant in the background, but is of course very present through spices and sweetness, but not directly as wood. I really like that right now.
    • Taste
      significantly stronger, more peppery, here comes a real swing of bitter oak, dark chocolate and a whole scoop of spices.
    • Finish
      the spicy oak bitterness also lingers in the finish. A lot of dark chocolate, but here the sweet aromas also come back to the palate. The oak cools down nicely at the end, with a little cigarillo.

Rich and mature, complex three-dimensional taste Palate: sweet and sour, obvious tannin, blueberry cream roll, dried ume plum, wooden aroma, dried flowers, black chocolate, concentrated cocoa, dried fruit at low temperature. Deep dark tone, dry aroma, quite comfortable finish: Finish: long and full-bodied, black and delicate, crushed tobacco, Italian concentrated wine Body: medium weight, obvious tannin, astringent, medium bitter bottom

    Nose: 88/100
    Palate: 88/100
    Finish: 88/100
    Body: 88/100
    Overall: 88/100

    Overall: This wine perfectly explains how beautiful the dry and dehydrated aroma can be from the smell to the entrance. The enlarged aroma covers the bitter bottom and can still feel some vaguely.
