    [January, 2008]  Together with friends I emptied bottle no. 411 that I bought for 177 Euro in November, 2007.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 simply state "a sensational sherry monster".

    A belter! The nose is wonderful. Would have been a 92, but the taste could have been a bit more full and there are no half-points here, so... The DL Platinum series is of outstanding quality with these old sherries, the only downside are the current astronomical prices.
    • Nose
      Jägermeister, not quite so sweet but as herbal, cafe latte, a delicious sweet oak, anise, sweet, strong sherry, rumraisin, liquer fondant, very much in the same space as old sherry Glendronach/Benriach from the 70's. This impression strengthens with water. Opens up also somewhat Granny Smithy: the oak here is really delicious.
    • Taste
      Sweet and herbal, caraway, Jägermeister, sweet coffee, raisin, dry date, cigar, leather. Actually all the classsic good sherriness. A very nice maple syrupy -side, raw cane sugar.
    • Finish
      Rowan-candy, chocolate, sweet coffee.

    Absolutely fantastic
    • Nose
      Nose is dominated by dark fruits like dates, figs and raisins combined with dark chocolate and coffey  All in a very elegant mixture with Oak and wood
    • Taste
      Wow, Taste comes intense with an explosion of Sherry dominated tones followed by growing spices and woody tannins.  
    • Finish
      Medium long with fading spices, sherry tones and a balanced woody finish
