I love Madeira. I don’t know if it loves me but it is at least on friendly terms with my taste buds. My taste buds like dessert. Even if you think you don’t like sweet wine the acidity on this may turn your head. It is a nuts cutting down molasses mountains carpeted in trees loosing glazed nuts. Malmsey. Definitely my friend.

Earthy, menthol, start anise, almost amaro-like, very sweet, but balanced by the earthy greenness

Burnt caramel, hazelnut, lighter acidity. All in all a lovely malmsey only lacking the richness and complexity of its more exalted brethren.

Toffee and caramel notes, not too sweet. Delicious, oak notes.
