Yes!! Nutty and nice toffee sweets! This is interesting Madeira! Not the acidity that Bual has. Great glass. — a month ago

10 Years Old Madeira Bual

Burnt caramel, Demerara sugar, soy sauce. Attractive darkness. On the drier side and all the better for it. Lacking only the depth and complexity of its vintage brethren. An excellent affordable madeira. Best after a week of air. — 4 years ago

Château Sisqueille

Rivesaltes Vin Doux Naturel White Blend 1942

Fascinating - mulling spice, fig, prune, orange peel, and burnt rubber. On day 1 reminiscent to a 20 year tawny port, but on day 2 this is drinking almost identically to Bual Madeira with a sweet tarry finish. — 4 years ago

Alvada 5 Year Old Rich Madeira

A hearty sausage and mash led, English dinner with siblings at atmospheric aged wine bar near London bridge included a Magnum of Champagne served in tiny chilled silver tankards and failed attempts to order 1980s Cos d'Estournel (the fine and rate wine list hasn't been updated for years and none of the interesting wines were on the cellar).

Dinner concluded with this modern styled Madeira. Caramel, walnuts and raisins. Very accessible. Very delicious. Not a patch on the more distinguished, older Madeiras but a good entry level option and a fun way to end the evening.
