Color: rice wine, light soy sauce.
Smell: At first what seems to be a little saltiness from smoky bacon is almost completely masked by herbal tea, ebony, candied dates, and a generous amount of caramel sauce over the fire. The mix of sweetness has the punch of a punch, but with too much punch it starts to feel bitter, similar to the juice squeezed out of a lemon peel.
Drinking: The suppression of alcohol sense is still good. Depressed sweetness, red and black. Candied fruit, sweetness of jujube tea; spice notes leaning towards cinnamon and bay leaf; bitterness of aged wood and americano.
End rhyme: Just swallowed, there will be a little smoky feeling. Although the end rhyme is long, it is mainly the bitterness of wood and grape skin, and then there will be a little Chinese medicine flavor. On the whole, there is a clear sense of great sweetness + medicinal stew.
A 25 or 26 year old wine in theory, good complexity, overpowering alcohol, long finish - but I don't like the flavor, tired, depressed. Maybe this style of Shirley (heavy Shirley? Dirty Shirley?) is really not suitable for me.
