Depending on the form of the day, it is sometimes very closed and in the end very bitter. I had a more positive impression of the 50-year-old 68er from MoS: Much more accessible from the nose and mouth, lighter and more fruity with a great variety of aromas. However, the ABV could have been a bit higher.
Fruit punch with raisins and plums. It adds nuts, dark chocolate, leather, polish, spice, some mocha & chamomile tea. Strong and complex
Medium body - clearly marked by Oloroso-Sherry & Tannins. Here, too, aromas of dried fruits, spices, nuts, leather and dark chocolate can be found. All this with a dash of cream. The ABV is completely sufficient. However, I wonder if a higher alcohol content might have had a more positive effect on the aromas.
Long finish with hazelnuts, sherry and spices. At the end slightly dry - peppery & pleasantly bitter.
[December, 2006] Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 154 Euro in April, 2006.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 92,5. My notes state a beautiful balanced complex and rich sherry profile.
