    October 1, 2013 - wow! what a nose!
    nuts, fudge, vanilla - but not opulent. Restrained smells
    very dry, rich but refreshing
    layers of flavour
    hazlenuts, complex
    long
    very expensive but worth it

    October 22, 2012 - Very very dry, with a well-delineated profile-a common thread, I think, among vintage sherries- and an overall impression of a peanut butter cookie...I liked this one. The orange character is here, too, and it certainly seems like it spent a long time under flor.
