    Dreaming back to 1966, it is a pity that this wine has slightly missed the peak period, but still left a corner of the door, allowing me to glimpse the light that leaked out of that golden age.
    • Nose
      The hearty Shirley bomb has a perfect balance between sugar (nectar, ginger brown sugar, mocha, licorice), fruit (fig, red dates, persimmon, lemon) and smoke (bonfire, earth, leather). The oak barrels in the cooked wine for a long time bring the wine with salt butter, almonds and walnuts in coconut milk, wooden spice composed of turpentine and sweet ginger, which firmly covers the grain direction of yeast, pastries and sherry Herbs floating above, floral fragrance.

      After a little awakening, the flavor becomes young and lively, showing enhanced liqueur, yellow apricot and tropical fruits.
    • Taste
      Powerful and tempered wooden spices, pepper, white oak, shredded ginger, fried walnuts. Then comes the darker and darker dried sherry, citrus fruits, a small amount of grape skin, and the fruit flavor is lighter than expected, probably a refill. Finally, the caramel, turpentine, sea salt and other flavors of the winery will end.
      It is fuller and stronger, with a good fat feel, medium sweetness, no tannins, a little sourness, and almost no bitter bottom.
    • Finish
      Longer, nuts, sea salt cocoa, citrus peel oil.

    Nose: fruity, tropical fruits galore, pineapple, mango, passion fruit, apricots, honey, some vanilla.

    Taste: sweet and creamy nectar, fruit basket again, also some citrus, a bit of honey soaked cherry, the oak wood is becoming louder, spices, pepper, ginger, some notes of ginger.

    Finish: long, warm, gets more zesty, hints of grapefruit, overall still fruity and sweet.

    [February, 2003]  I had this dram during a MaRa Springbank tasting in Limburg.

    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 this 95.  My notes state delicious rich sherried whisky with a well balanced profile.  It is smooth and gentle both in the nose and on the palate.  Nevertheless it has a strong individual character.
