    December 30, 2014 - firm to start; much better after several months in the fridge; smooth caramel/toffee/espresso

    November 15, 2014 - Pulled from a Corvine over the past 6 months or so. Consistently good, but not great. Big bites of toffee, fruit cake, burnt orange and nuttiness. Very fresh and creamy, but I'm realizing that I prefer 20 year tawnys.

    September 27, 2014 - This particular btl has been in the back of the cellar since '03. I found it drinking remarkably well. Very classic and typical tawny. Loved the orange spice aspect of this. Quite long. I expect this will hold nicely for several weeks under pump.

    August 11, 2014 - Orangey red. Quite spirity, redcurrant fruit. The palate is quite fresh, redcurrant but not alot else. Lacks complexity, much prefer other 10 year old tawny's.

    June 10, 2014 - Drank over a week. A solid tawny with a nice nutty and creamy palate but still just a tad too much heat on the end. I did like it, but wasn't in love.
