    July 12, 2014 - Over aged and syrupy. Not undrinkable, but not enjoyable. Well past it's prime.
    Opened on 7/11/2014.

    March 12, 2011 - Wonderful. Deep gold color. Smooth as silk and rich but still has a crisp side on the palate. Drink it now - why wait?!

    May 9, 2010 - Whoops, beginning to madeirize. Definite sherry like notes and visibly deep yellow color. Bought on release and stored at58 degrees.

    February 18, 2009 - butter, honey, caramel corn? heat on back end is surprising and excessive. very cotton candy butter jelly belly. i can see what people like in this but feel like ive tasted it in much cheaper bottles.
