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.
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.
