- sergeColour: plain coffee. Nose: the opposite of the 1990 as far as styles are
concerned, yet the overall quality is similarly high. Amazing chocolaty nose,
developing toward rich old balsamic vinegar and Chinese fermented prune sauce
(the one they use on Peking duck). And, of course, fruitcake. A pretty fabulous,
ultra-tertiary sherry monster. With water: s.u.p.e.r.b., you could think this
baby spent forty years in glass to gain refinement and complexity. So tobacco,
old toolbox, old turpentine, shoe polish (not obligatorily old), motor oil,
ancient crème de menthe… And all that jazz. Mouth (neat): immense sherry,
wonderful, bursting with menthol and herbs plus prunes and prunes and prunes.
Spectacular. Also notes of very old Armagnac, cherry liqueurs, peppermint. Yeah.
With water: perfect, with more fruits – rather Seville oranges, as usual with
this kind of profile. Juicy golden raisins, black pepper, cloves. Finish: very
long and mentholated. Even more so in the aftertaste. Comments: this could well
have come from a genuine old oloroso-soaked solera butt. Yes, or the cask had
been very smartly prepared/ treated/ seasoned.
