15.5/20 (87/100)
Цвет янтарный, полный. Дымные тона, дуб, сухая заварка черного чая, курага, цедра апельсина. Очень гармонично, красиво, полно. В теле хорошая кислотность, смолистые тона, дерево, лесной орех, апельсиновая цедра. Послевкусие умеренное.

Medium brown in color and you can tell from the legs it has significant viscosity. Dried figs, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, ginger, buttered brown sugar, orange marmalade, toasted walnut, banana, and a hint of alcohol on the nose. Heavy sweetness, golden raisin, golden delicious apple, burnt caramel and a touch of coffee on the palate. Thick luscious mouthfeel but the amount of sugar in this means that isn’t a surprise in the least, luckily there is a nice acidity that pushes back the sweetness to keep it from being overwhelming. Hoisin sauce, nuttiness, and once the sweetness has faded enough a hint of a tannic bite on the finish.

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.
