    ...only 89P, but possibly because the bottle was nearly empty

    Another great success for this Distiller's Edition!
    • Nose
      A nice balance between power and softness with a small advantage to the sweetness this time. The sherry is even better integrated (compared to 91/07 lgv 4/495) and thus dominates the nose. We are always on the classic scents of sherry but also come to invite notes of chocolate and notes of fresh fruit (strawberries).
    • Taste
      Not aggressive, all round. Many aromas and a bit of astringency.
    • Finish
      More in the continuity of the mouth than the 91/07. Peat and smoke remain discreet. This final lasts, lasts ... with a very nice retro-olfaction.
