    Colour: dark mahogany. Nose: full sherry this time, and with flying colours at that. Absolutely not overpowering despite the stunningly high strength – at almost 50 years of age, imagine! Prunes and old rancio, vin jaune (flor, old walnut), old precious wood, thuja, balsamic vinegar, pine resin and high-end soy sauce. High class, but the alcohol starts to attack your nostrils after a while, so let’s add water. With water: truly outta this world now, as it got extremely complex, with loads of added aromas such as old leather, incense, butter crème, cigar box and prunes to name but a few. An extraordinary olfactory voyage. Mouth (neat): how thick and concentrated! A true maelstrom of wood extracts, all things resinous and minty, red and black fruits and tannins (grape pips). Not too far from the best Armagnacs, but it’s bit hot so let’s add water straight away. With water: best of news, it’s the fruitiness that comes out now (strawberries, blackcurrants, blueberry pie) whilst the rest remains in place. Finish: okay, maybe the tannins are a bit ‘too much’ at this stage (cherry stems tea, orange peel) but at 50 years, no wonder. Comments: brilliant very old sherry monster despite the heavy tannins. SGP:572 – 91 points.
